Leonardo S. Borlini (Bocconi University, Angelo Sraffa Department of Legal Studies) has posted The Emergence of the International Anti-Corruption Framework and Its Domestic Implementation: The Case of Italy on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The past twenty years have seen unprecedented international initiatives aimed at combating corrupt practices. Over the same period, Italy has ratified and implemented within its legal system five international anti-corruption treaties and amended its domestic legislation on different occasions. However, despite considerable efforts corruption remains a serious challenge in the country. With particular reference to the afore-mentioned conventions, this article explores the main international rules on criminalisation and prevention of corruption in order to, eventually, investigate the achievements and shortcomings of the Italian legislation in light of such provisions.
