ABSTRACT. In this paper I integrate the literature on the implementation of policies against corruption and organized crime, the link between corruption and organized crime, the anti-corruption policies of Member States, and the links between organized crime and corruption, with the issues of the causes of corruption conviction, the factors that render the judiciary vulnerable to outside influence and corruption, the level of complexity of corruption schemes targeting politicians, and the EU approach to corruption within the Member States. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on the liability of legal persons for corruption, the EU anti-corruption measures, the scope of the EU powers to prevent and combat corruption across Member States, the link between corruption and money laundering, and the perception of political and private sector corruption. pp. 155–160
