Corruption—defined broadly as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain4 —is an insidious problem affecting the lives of millions around the world. Not surprisingly, corruption has been an increasing focus of national governments, international institutions, and the private sector. Enforcement of anti- orruption laws has risen sharply, including the imposition of huge fines against enterprises, and prison sentences for offending corporate executives. In addition, international financial institutions and export credit agencies increasingly are setting anti-bribery requirements and barring or penalizing enterprises that participate in corruption.
