Project: Across the world legal authority is challenged by different forms of corruption. Corruption destroys the immune system of law from inside, undermining the principle of justice and equality before the law as two of its basic pillars. The phenomenon of corruption is not new. In the past it was more or less synonymous with bribery. The complexity of modern social relations has made it possible to receive other forms of undue advantages in order to perform or refrain from performing in a particular way. New forms of corruptive behavior and its cross-border effects spurred the adoption of international legal regulations aimed at fighting it.

For a successful fight against corruption it is necessary to know it better. It is therefore necessary to find a comprehensive legal definition of corruptive behavior, define those legal and general cultural values that can reduce or eliminate corruptive behavior, and to identify the means to strengthen them, assess the importance and impact of codes of conduct in the fight against corruption, assess the efficiency of the fight against corruption by taking into consideration historic and geographic data and to assess the efficiency of legal regulations of moral standards (i.e. the so called laws on integrity) aimed at reducing corruption.
