  Add to Calendar 2019-06-20 9:30 2019-06-21 18:30 Europe/Paris 4th Portsmouth Law School. CALL FOR PAPERS. CORRUPTION, DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS

The current legal framework for combatting corruption is mainly focused on the prevention and prosecution of transactions tainted by bribery or other corrupt practices. The persistence of corruption on a global, but also on a European level suggests, however, that this transactional approach is merely tinkering with symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of corruption. The purpose of this conference is to evaluate the current legal framework and investigate whether the creation of a legal nexus between corruption, democracy and human rights could help to overcome present problems and challenges
