Making up Corruption Control: Conducting Due Diligence in a Danish Law Firm

Hans Krause Hansen, Morten Hove Henriksen

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    Contemporary scholarship on corruption control has put much emphasis on analyzing the surge of anti-corruption legislations, principles and regulatory modes at the macro level. This paper examines the micro practice of corruption control, as exemplified by the deployment of due diligence in corporate anti-corruption work, building on concepts from studies of the cultural political economy, risk and classifications in examination process. Empirically we focus on anti-corruption due diligence in a Danish law firm specialized in corporate mergers
    and acquisitions.
