Corruption from Interpol point of view

Interpol, the world’s largest international police organization, that was created in 1923 to facilitate cross-border police co-operation, and support and assist all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or fight international crime, is involved in the fight against corruption that is one of INTERPOL’s six priority crime areas.

The Mission statement of the INTERPOL Anti-Corruption Academy is "Working together towards a corruption-free world by promoting and defending integrity, justice and the rule of law".

The INTERPOL Group of Experts on Corruption (IGEC) defines corruption as "any course of action or failure to act by individuals or organizations, public or private, in violation of law or trust for profit or gain."

IGEC’s mission statement is "We believe in a free and just society. To be truly just, society must embrace high standards of integrity and openly resist corruption. To this end, we join with the community to ensure such standards and accept responsibility to fight all forms of corruption through education, prevention and effective law enforcement."

The IGEC approach is probably more extensive than the one of Transparency International that defines corruption as "the misuse of entrusted power for private gain."
