The resource curse literature frequently mentions Norway as a rare case of successful governance among oil exporters. Three major prosecuted cases involving bribery of foreign public officials show that international pressure and conventions, as well as a proactive approach among domestic law enforcement, is forcing Norwegian firms to adapt to a new anti-corruption regime. While firms continue to meet extortionate demands for illegal payments, bribery has become far riskier and managers know they can face personal liability. Ongoing evaluation of Norway’s anti-corruption commitments should expand to include an assessment of its foreign policy objectives.
