Éthique commerciale, bonne gouvernance des entreprises et corruption internationale


  • Brigitte Pereira


A high number of international conventions and European legislations aimed at fighting corruption entered into force in the past ten years. They created new incriminations in the field. Especially corruption is now punished in the private sector. Many states have ratified such instruments and modified their domestic legal order accordingly. Anyway the gap between provisions and implementation remains. In order to fight corruption and restore loyalty in business relations legal provisions are necessary but not sufficient. This leads the author to advocate other means to fight corruption to promote a more ethical corporate governance.
