Modernėjanti klasikinio korupcijos apibrėžimo Lietuvoje kaita.
During the process of Lithuania’s integration to the European Union, as well as performing the alignment of legislation, a new topicality has recently emerged, i.e., the definition of the concept of corruption, and it is precisely this issue which is being tackled herein. The need of a clearly defined concept of corruption in the legal acts of the Republic of Lithuania is determined by its unanimous perception not only in the legislative procedure and the practice of application of anti–corruption laws, or in public administration institutions, but also by the civic society. The model of the classical corruption definition in the rule of law gradually turns into a relic, „falls out“ of the context of the civil service and its subject and transforms itself into a modern corruption concept comprising all of the aspects of social life. Institutionalisation of the modern corruption definition into the legislation of the Republic of Lithuania has become an obligation after the Council of Europe Criminal Law Convention on Corruption was signed, as well as following the legislation alignment and, in general, heading towards such legal acts which acknowledge precedence of the individual over the state.
