In recent years, the demands and requirements of anti-corruption-compliance have increased for multinational corporations. The question now arises as to how these corporations react to expectations. The project’s goal is to analyse the business reports and codes of conduct of multinational corporations from various countries regarding the content and the extent of the embedded anti-corruption-compliance. The analysis is aligned with the following questions:
- Which specific content aspects of anti-corruption-compliance do multinational companies report?
- Is there a similarity between the companies reported content and the extent of anti-corruption-compliance?
- Are there differences between the companies reported content and the extent of anti-corruption-compliance based on their location country of the headquarters, industry or the companies history (e.g. cases of corruption)?
