Handbook of Compliance Integrity Management Excerpt :

This handbook is the first resource to provide a scientific analysis of the nature of compliance. It examines the subject from such crucial and varied perspectives as ethics, behavioral science, risk management, accounting, and European and international law. Much more than a critical approach to the existing practice of supervision, it provides a wealth of information, guidance, and valuable insights for the day-to-day work of compliance officers. With chapters contributed by lecturers of VU University Amsterdam’s flourishing post-doctoral Executive Master Program in Compliance and Integrity Management – which fosters alternatives such as greater trust in self-regulation and market discipline – the book explores such aspects of compliance and integrity management as the following: • monitoring risk compliance and integrity; • stakeholder and reputation management; • conflicts of interest; • anti-bribery; • export controls; • extraterritorial jurisdiction of U.S. legislation; • fraud; • duty of care; • market abuse; • privacy; and • competition. The analysis throughout is supported by a comprehensive study of the literature concerning the raison d'être of supervision and regulation. Meeting the need for an in-depth analysis of the expanding field of compliance and integrity management, this book is a milestone in a field that is rapidly growing in importance across a wide spectrum of business and professional activity. It will prove an essential practical resource for company or institutional officers worldwide in setting up a compliance function in their organization. Well known as a consultant in compliance-related matters, Sylvie C. Bleker-van Eyk is currently Senior Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers Forensic Services, Chair of the Supervisory Committee on Monitoring Anti–Money Laundering Policy at WODC, the Research and Documentation Centre of the Netherlands Ministry of Security and Justice, and Professor and Program Director of

The Cambridge Handbook of Disaster Risk Reduction and International Law Excerpt :

The number, intensity, and impact of diverse forms of 'natural' and 'human-made' disasters are increasing. In response, the international community has shifted its primary focus away from disaster response to prevention and improved preparedness. The current globally agreed upon roadmap is the ambitious Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, central to which is the better understanding of disaster risk management and mitigation. Sendai also urges innovative implementation, especially multi-sectoral and multi-hazard coherence. Yet the law sector itself remains relatively under-developed, including a paucity of supporting 'DRR law' scholarship and minimal cross-sectoral engagement. Commonly, this is attributable to limited understanding by other sectors about law's dynamic potential as a tool of disaster risk mitigation, despite the availability of many risk-related norms across a broad spectrum of legal regimes. This unique, timely Handbook brings together global and multi-sector perspectives on one of the most pressing policy issues of our time.
