The Introduction explains that corruption and money laundering can be politically destabilizing and can also retard economic growth. These are not, however, the predominant reasons why States have concluded international instruments that address such conduct. The interests of domestic business lobbies have, for example, played an important role. The Introduction provides definitions of key terms, namely corruption, bribery, embezzlement, trading in influence, abuse of functions, and illicit enrichment. Finally, the Introduction explains the structure and focus of this book, which looks specifically at the anti-corruption instruments produced by four organizations: the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United Nations, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, and the Financial Action Task Force.

Keywords:   business lobby, economic development, bribery, embezzlement, trading in influence, abuse of functions, illicit enrichment
