Criminal law efficiency is a concept often referred to but seldom defined. Clarity, the author argues, is necessary for finding practical solutions to fundamental challenges in this area of law, especially with the criminal justice system itself exposed to the problem.

Tina Soreide offers views in contrast to mainstream ideas on optimal criminal law responses to corruption, with emphasis on the fundamental role of the criminal justice system in the fight against corruption and the bolstering effect this can have on other integrity mechanisms in society.

Her analysis explains the concept of criminal law efficiency through economic approaches, addresses law enforcement failure primarily in the most developed countries despite the perception that it is more widespread in poorer societies, and explains why many criminal law responses to corruption are at risk of becoming 'facade strategies' that may in fact facilitate corruption for those involved - all without losing track of justice and fairness.

Corruption and Criminal Justice offers insights into the obstacles that policy makers and government advisors cannot ignore. By introducing new points of view, while remaining mindful of established and contested law enforcement strategies for the most challenged societies, it serves as an invaluable resource for advanced students and academics interested in law, economics, and large corporations.
