Toward an Interest Group Theory of Foreign Anti-Corruption Laws
Sean J. Griffith & Thomas H. Lee · University of Illinois Law Review · August 20, 2019

This article explains observed patterns of enactment and enforcement of foreign anti-corruption laws and generates predictions concerning the efficacy of such laws based on the extraterritorial operations of multi-national businesses. It also suggests a limitation on the spread of such laws into countries with few or no multinational corporations and, therefore, no realistic extraterritorial enforcement risk.
