International Legal Responses to Corruption (704M3)

30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn teaching

In this module, you focus on the international campaign against corruption. You examine its history and development and the role of non-government organisations - such as Transparency International - and international bodies - such as the United Nations - as well as regional agencies such as:

  • the European Union
  • Council of Europe
  • the Gulf Co-operation Council.

You then turn to international and regional anti-corruption agreements including, in particular the United Nations Convention against Corruption and the United Nations against Transnational Organised Crime.
