Fighting Corruption
International Corporate Integrity Handbook
Editor François Vincke and Fritz Heimann
Pub No. 678 eBook
2008 Edition
308 pages
Corruption has a corrosive impact on international business. Fighting Corruption lays out the problems and offers practical solutions on how to attack commercial dishonesty at its source. 

In the third edition of this highly acclaimed volume, ICC experts offer solutions to combat this scourge of global trade and investment.

Completely updated from the second edition, Fighting Corruption includes new material covering the changing views of facilitation payments, the recent UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and valuable tips on how to prevent extortion.

Covering subjects as diverse as money laundering, the role of agents, extortion, accounting and whistleblowing, this invaluable book will be the tool of reference for managers, compliance officers, lawyers and anyone concerned with stamping out bribery, extortion and the other evils associated with corruption.

“This handbook is written by experts from the business community for members of the business community.  Our aim is to give concrete, practical help to those on the frontline combating extortion and bribery.  Our goal is to help achieve – at last – a corruption-free, level playing field so that executives will no longer offer a bribe because of their suspicion that their competitors will do so or because corrupt officials will be demanding it.  Our hope is that, by following our recommendations, companies will be able to compete on the quality of their products and services.”
