This course focuses on international anti-corruption law, policy and practice from an Australian perspective. It examines in detail the development and implementation of the key international treaties and conventions that seek to prevent and suppress transnational corruption, and how these international efforts have influenced domestic anti-bribery laws and enforcement regimes in Australia, United States and United Kingdom.

We will review the laws, policies and practical efforts taken to combat multinational cross-border corporate corruption, the causes of and responses to corruption generally, and investigate the contemporary trends and issues, including the emergence of ‘hybrid’ laws, deferred prosecution agreements and new and expanding anti-money-laundering and proceeds of crime regimes.

The course also includes a regional focus, examining the challenges presented for regulating corruption in the Asia-Pacific region including case-studies on corruption in China, Indonesia and India.
