Using interdisciplinary teoretical approach as well as implications of rational choice theory and game theory the research will endeavour to make transparent the underlying incentives of bribery situations. By adopting the most appropriate definition of bribery for the analytical purposes, the research will focus on factors that enable and encourage corrupt dealings to take place. It will also focus on the creation, sustenance and potential spread of corruption. The research will analyze the incentives and control issues in the case of an unilateral and bilateral monopoly. It will also explore the potential of various criminal sanctions as well as other measures of criminal policy that tend to deter bribery.
