Abstract: An overview of public corruption in the world uses information from a survey of 257 experts and concludes that Western European countries are viewed as less corrupt and fraudulent than most industrialized countries in other parts of the world. Additional articles analyze corruption in Italy as a rational choice depending on monopolistic regulation, discretionary power, and accountability in decisionmaking; the problems of corruption and administrative functioning in five Central Asian countries; and efforts against fraud in the United Kingdom and the European Union. Further papers focus on law enforcement related to trademark infringement, corporate violence resulting in injury or death, the possible incompatibility between insurance and victim-offender mediation, prosecution in the United States, and the Willem Pompe Penology Institute at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
