Session Abstract

Until a few years ago, in many countries corruption payments made abroad were considered ordinary and necessary business expenses, and these expenses were therefore tax-deductible. However, in a relatively short time this perception has changed completely, and foreign bribery has become a critical concern for many governments worldwide. Consequently, they have strengthened their anti-corruption efforts by redefining and reinforcing criminal laws regarding bribery and corruption as well as by strengthening the enforcement of such laws. This paradigm change challenges organizations from the non-profit, public and private sector. If an organization does not behave in compliance with the prevailing rules and laws, it can be held criminally liable and risks, losing not only its legitimacy but also its access to essential resources provided by its environment. Thus, anti-corruption needs to be an integral part of an integrative risk management. The session will discuss how organizations from the non-profit, public and private sector are dealing with the risk of corruption in their risk management process..
