Abstract: 
The Basel Institute on Governance and the International Bar Association (IBA) have published a study on typologies of corruption in the judiciary. The study was conducted in the context of the IBA's Judicial Integrity Initiative. One of the key findings of the study is that while bribery is particularly prevalent when the rule of law is considered weak, undue political influence as a form of corruption occurs in countries across the board regardless of governance structures.
