Summary/Abstract: Approaches to Defining Corruption. Article deals with the corruption and multitude of its features in public sector. Analyzing them, they firstly use broad approach trying to identify the hard-to-grasp phenomenon of corruptible behaviour and provide few general definitions. Suggesting that general definitions provide little information for policy makers preventing corruption they later break the term in 10 fields of corruptive behaviour from perspectives of law, economics and political science and provide specific typology of this phenomenon. Authors suggest that by combining both general and case specific approaches a more accurate image of corruption will be provided. Sociológia 2007, Vol. 39 (No. 4: 316-336)
