what-is-the-role-of-compliance-in-managing-corruptionIn today’s world we are seeing a crackdown worldwide on bribery and corruption.  Organisations around the world charged with this task include Australia’s ICAC, whilst in the USA there is the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK has the Serious Fraud Office and there is also Transparency International – fighting corruption worldwide.
