Summary/Abstract: Corruption is one of the main topics of discussion in any field and at any level, representing one of the greatest challenges of the contemporary world. This is present both in poor and developing and developed countries, and the fight to combat it has become a serious problem, especially as the phenomenon expands very rapidly, including, firstly, a few sectors, a few domains, and then the whole of society, becoming a lifestyle, a mentality, a labyrinth from which it can no longer come out. The diminution of the phenomenon is possible in a knowledge society, with individuals having an irreproachable moral conduct, based on education, built on the most durable elements of morality and consciousness which mankind has accumulated over time to the form of today of our civilization. Corruption is perceived by most segments of the population as a serious and dangerous phenomenon that undermines the structures of power and authority and violates the expectations of many people as to the subsequent evolution of social life into living standards.
