This module examines from a comparative perspective, the ways in which domestic legal systems seek to regulate the problem of corruption and bribery.

It will initially focus on the regulation of bribery in UK domestic law examining the key provisions and impact of the Bribery Act 2010 and the methods used to police, detect and punish corruption.

The module will then examine comparatively the domestic law and practice of a number of other national jurisdictions, including, in particular Qatar, in order to establish the different levels of success of different approaches as well as international best practice in this area.
