Aug 23, 2012 | Supreme Court Auditorium, Singapore Academy of Law

Bribery Trends and Challenges: Singapore and Global Anti-corruption Laws

This seminar will explore and explain the forces at work which shape the anti-corruption legislation globally and in Singapore. The enforcement approaches range from the prosecution of individuals to a clear policy shift in some jurisdictions such as UK and USA which seek to impose corporate criminal liability by placing the burden on corporations to take adequate steps to prevent bribery and corruption by employees and associated third parties. Another international trend is the increasing global coordination between law enforcement agencies in different jurisdictions in the fight against cross-border corruption, and where anti-corruption legislation worldwide is becoming extra-territorial in nature. Singapore, with its reputation as being one of the least corrupt jurisdictions in the world, has successfully maintained its strict legal framework and robust stance towards corruption for many years. What lessons can be learnt from the experience of these jurisdictions? [field_event_link]
