Public Ethics and Prevention of Corruption. The Problem of Political Staff

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The 'anti-corruption' law (190/2012) and the related delegated decrees mark a turning point in the setting up of a specific policy of prevention, modelled in accordance with models recommended in the international sphere and integrated in the reform of the public administration. The no less crucial question regarding the prevention of corruption on the part of political staff is neither an item on the agenda nor there is an equally well-defined strategy, ending up being treated predominantly from a criminal law standpoint that is quite ineffective. The essay criticises the chronic dearth in 'politics law' of measures to favour the probity, transparency and responsibility of politicians, and comments on the factors that have determined this situation in the various cycles of republican political experience, finally dwelling on some evolutionary aspects that can be noticed in more recent legislation.
