What's Wrong with Bribery? An Example Utilizing Access to Safe Drinking Water
Dhooge, Lucien J.
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v30 n1 p131-177 Mar 2013
This case study examines the role of bribery in the global marketplace through an example involving access to safe drinking water in the developing world. Parts II and III set out the objectives and methods of classroom delivery for the case study. Part IV is the background reading relating to bribery with particular emphasis on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in the United States. This background information is followed by a discussion of the problem of lack of access to safe drinking water in the developing world, a hypothetical state in which a water treatment facility is to be constructed to address this problem, and background information regarding four potential bidders for construction of the facility. These four bidders represent a wide range of companies from publicly traded corporations with strong antibribery cultures and protections to privately and governmentally owned enterprises with weaker anticorruption measures. These factual sections are followed in Part VI by questions addressing stakeholders and the application of ethical theories to the bidding process for the construction of the facility.
