Hock, Shepherd and Button focus on corporate corruption and start by arguing that categorising those tainted as either perpetrators or victims is reductionist. They show that corporations in many instances occupy dual roles as both perpetrators and victims and that their victimisation and culpability are a matter of degree. Drawing on the court papers in bribery cases involving Airbus and Rolls-Royce, they use pathogen theory to explain the situational factors that may lead a person to engage in bribery. They provide an alternative explanation of why people and organisations engage in international bribery.
