Titolo della tesi: Comparative study on Civil effects of corruption on international commercial contracts, in the light of Islamic Republic of Iran’s legal system and English contracts Law
The current research aims to compare the concept and examples of corruption as a crime in the laws of Iran, England and international trade and to identify national and international norms to deal with them. The most important questions that this thesis intends to answer are whether the corruption that exists in the conclusion of interna-tional commercial contracts has a civil effect on the validity of the conclusion of the contract. What are the most important examples of corruption in international trade? A comparative study conducted in the form of a library analysis illustrates that the in-volvement of representatives and illegal intermediaries in international business con-tracts due to undue influence and the presence of bribery vitiates public policy. For this reason, these contracts have been invalidated and ineffective, and for this reason, it makes these contracts null and void. Of course, different attitudes can be observed between public and private contracts in Iran’s legal system and English legal system.
Bribery, extortion, collusion, fraud, business influence, acquisition of illegal property, money laundering, embezzlement and illegal possession of the property, and commit-ting other financial deviations by public officials and abuse of office are the most important examples of corruption in the field of international trade.
