2016 – Dealing with the consequences: Repairing the social damage caused by corruption

What do you steal when you bribe a government official? Do you cause any harm when you negotiate a kickback? Is it any different if “everybody does it”? When does your conflict of interest turn into an improper advantage and harms others? These are questions that judges, prosecutors, lawyers, citizens and activists need to confront when dealing with corruption cases.
