Summary/Abstract: Among officially listed violations of the law, corruption is a common criminal offence. It includes very diverse manifestations of abuse of power. Corruption in- volves two criminal offences: giving bribe (active bribery) and receiving bribe (pas- sive bribery), recognized in numerous modern criminal codes, but also in international acts. Due to extreme danger of corruptive behavior of individuals and groups, the in- ternational community (the universal international organization – the United Nations but also regional organizations, first of all the Council of Europe and the European Union) has adopted a range of legal acts so as to lay a firm base and instruments for organized, joint action in finding, prosecuting, and preventing these illegal behaviors. In this paper the author has analyzed many theoretical and practical aspects of corrup- tion in international legal acts and national and international law theory and practice.
