    Political corruption is an important challenge that democracies in Europe are confronted with. It contributes to the decline of citizens' trust and confidence in democracy and weakens democratic principles and processes. Key areas of concern include: - Political finances - Conflicts of interest - Lobbying - Undue influence on the justice system. This book contains contributions on each of these topics. They identity risks that corruption poses to the future of democracy in Europe, and they propose a wide range of measures for action which are not only aimed at preventing political corruption and enhancing transparency and accountability but also at rebuilding confidence in democracy.
