Article deals with the corruption and multitude of its features in public sector. Analysing them, they firstly use broad approach trying to identify the hard-to-grasp phenomenon of corruptible behaviour and provide few general definitions. Suggesting that the general definitions provide little information for policy makers preventing corruption they later break the term in 10 fields of corruptive behaviour from the perspectives of law, economics and political science and provide specific typology of this phenomenon. The authors suggest that by combining both general and case specific approaches a more accurate image of corruption will be provided.
