Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Miscellaneous, grade: 2 (B), LMU Munich (Geschwister-Scholl-Institute for Political Science), course: Corruption as a phenomenon of international relations, 28 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: In recent years, global awareness of corruptive practices or rather corruption as such has increased enormously. In the past few years corruption in the political scenes such as scandals, immoral practices, etc., to name just a few, comes into light for the public. However, corruption does not exist only in the politics but frankly corruption is everywhere., abstract: The objection of this study, loosely, is to identify the causes and effects of corruption in international business transactions, the meaning of (corruption in) international business transactions and how can we detect, prevent, minimise or even resolve the problems. Thesis question: Is corruption in international business transactions an accepted norm that is tolerated globally? How has it come to be so, what harms has it done and what can we do about it?

There are many guides to the conduct of international business transactions, but none as comprehensive and detailed as this. It clearly identifies in great depth the many sources of risk in cross-border transactions, analyzes the legal instruments that provide protection to the parties, and describes the practical means--institutional, purchased, and negotiated--of reducing, reallocating, and perhaps even eliminating risks. Each chapter covers a distinct element of risk, with insightful commentary on the relevant national, regional, and international laws and detailed analyses of leading and defining cases from many jurisdictions and international courts, as well as considerations of significant scholarly contributions and guidance through insurance options and matters for negotiation. Beginning with the entry-level commercial transaction and letter of credit financing, the author moves through issues of commercial law, dispute resolution, sovereign involvement, public international law, antitrust law, and taxation. Along the way, he highlights types of transaction to which host country law has special application. The crucial issues of jurisdiction, choice of forum in dispute resolution, recognition and enforcement of judgments, foreign currency judgments, and defenses against claims of sovereign immunity all arise in context with detailed critical analysis and commentary. Other matters covered include the commercial and political risk insurance provided by such US agencies as the Export-Import Bank and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the protection for investors offered by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and the draft Multilateral Treaty on Investment (MAI).

As suggested by its title, this e-book presents student-oriented materials focused on legal issues common to international business transactions. With an emphasis on sales of goods and services, the materials review international transactions from both the private law and governmental regulatory perspectives, domestic and international. Several features of the book distinguish it as a teaching tool from more traditional law school offerings. First, the book is offered in an electronic format which is designed to make extensive use of web-based resources. Among other advantages, this format (1) provides much cheaper, flexible and more accessible learning materials for students; (2) takes advantage of the excellent web-based resources that students are accustomed to using, including multi-media content; and (3) creates a flexible framework that allows professors to adapt, improve or otherwise modify content to suit their needs during successive iterations of the course. Second, the materials and format are designed to encourage students to take a more active role in their learning with an emphasis on skills building. Each chapter presents a problem and typically asks students to address legal issues as a practicing lawyer would, working through primary materials — cases, statutes and treaty texts. Third, the materials are written and prepared for the uninitiated and uninformed. Basic background explanations are always provided and all questions posed in the text are meant to be answered by the students — there are no abstract, obtuse or unanswerable questions set out in the materials. With guidance from their instructor, students are required to examine the material provided not only to learn the relevant law but also to build the essential skills of effective lawyering.

Designed primarily as a casebook and text for law school study, this volume represents nearly four decades of work by the author to present the fundamentals of the law of international business transactions. The second edition refines and updates the materials in the first edition in a manner intended to be useful not only to students but as a desk book for practitioners. Like the first edition, this second edition focuses on the role of lawyers in identifying risks inherent in cross-border economic transactions, and then using primarily the law and negotiations to eliminate where possible, reduce where practicable and reallocate where necessary, those risks to the benefit of the client. Matters covered include: • the basic export-import sales contract; • the use of price-delivery terms to allocate both price and risk; • the application and use of the United Nations Sales Convention (CISG); • events which may excuse the nonperformance of a contract obligation; • when and how to opt in or out of the CISG; • financing the export sale with a commercial letter of credit; • a basic understanding of the WTO trade regulation system; • the regulation of importation, including tariff classification and valuation; • the regulation of exportation, including licensing and extraterritorial application of export laws; • U.S. and EU Rules affecting the professional liability of international transactions lawyers; • planning for the resolution of disputes in international transactions; • a comparative law understanding jurisdiction, applicable law, and judgments recognition; • issues affecting choices between arbitration and litigation of disputes; • drafting choice of forum clauses; • drafting choice of law clauses; • understanding rules regarding judgments obligations stated in foreign currencies; • recent multilateral efforts to harmonize the law on jurisdiction and judgments recognition; • dealing with and avoiding claims of sovereign immunity and act of state; • operating abroad through employees, agents, and distributors; • anti-bribery laws and the need for compliance programs and contract restrictions; • expropriation, political risk, and how to use insurance and contract terms to deal with them; • investor-state contracts; • antitrust laws and their extraterritorial application. Each chapter is designed to help the reader move from the simple cross-border sales transaction through steps which increase both activity abroad and the laws and regulations that may bring with them additional risks to be identified and allocated. A separate documents volume provides virtually all current primary source material on the law of international business transactions. There are many guides to the conduct of international business transactions, but none organized as clearly as this. With this up-to-date edition of a well-established practical guide, in-house lawyers for multinational corporations and practitioners in business law will quickly develop a framework for understanding each source of protection and enhance their ability to serve their company and clients well.
