Critical Acclaim
‘The field of anti-corruption law has grown exponentially in the last few decades. This authoritative, yet concise and practical Encyclopedia brings all the sub-specialties of the field together in one place. Both newcomers and longtime specialists alike will want to have this book at their fingertips.’
– Pascale Helene Dubois, Independent International Anti-Corruption Advisor, USA/Belgium

‘An ambitious project to pool our collective knowledge on corruption law in its widest sense, from some of the leading voices in their respective fields. The entries and case studies will surely spark dialogue and multidisciplinary collaboration in efforts to fight corruption from all angles.’
