Corruption and Criminal Justice

Book launch: Tina Søreide’s “Corruption and Criminal Justice”

The Centre on Law and Social Transformation’s seminar series

Why is criminal law regulation of corruption enforced so differently across countries? And if we could choose, what would optimal law enforcement solutions look like? In her book ‘Corruption and Criminal Justice’, Tina Søreide explains why economists and legal scholars tend to have different answers to these questions – and why this is a problem. At present, there are severe shortcomings in most criminal justice systems’ ability to control corruption, and the consequences are at their most severe in low-income countries.

Meet Tina Søreide (Professor of Law and Economics at the Norwegian School of Economics), in
conversation with Linda Grøning (Professor of Law and Chair of the Research Group on Criminal Law, Faculty of Law, University of Bergen ) and David Aled Williams (Senior Advisor at the U4 Anti-corruption Resource Centre at Chr. Michelsen Institute).
