Corruption is a condition which affects all aspects of society. As an endemic sociological occurrence, corruption appears with regular frequency in all countries on a global scale in varying degrees and proportions. Although the European Union cannot be perceived as a State, corruption creates barriers in the process of European integration. This being the case, the EU has, throughout the years, adopted a bloc of measures to combat corruption, in line with its competences. The aim of this paper is to briefly examine the relevant EU legislation in order to understand the institutional framework of the Union against corruption and what steps could be taken further to strengthen this framework.
