Corporate Social Responsibility and the FCPA

Thomas Fox

I was surprised to see the continuing the defense of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in publications normally thought of as pro-business. On July 1, authors Amol Mehra and Ajoke Agbool published an article in entitled, “The Corporate Responsibility to Prevent Corruption.” This article followed two articles in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) from the previous week which discussed the positive effects of the FCPA. In the article, the authors focused on a company’s corporate social responsibility to refrain from engaging in bribery and corruption.
