Countering small bribes is a complex challenge for companies. Transparency International research shows that, globally, more than 1 in 4 people paid a bribe in a recent 12 month period, highlighting the scale of the problem facing companies. Demands most often occur in overseas markets, where employees may be vulnerable through travelling alone or the company needs to release critical goods from customs.
Transparency International’s new guidance for companies, Countering Small Bribes, provides practical advice on addressing the challenge of countering small bribes including facilitation payments. Drawing on interviews with industry professionals, It is also designed to be of assistance to regulators, law-makers, prosecuting agencies and professional advisers.
