Insufficiently addressed by the doctrine and jurisprudence, the conflict of interests present, both in the public sector as well as in the private one, has become a major reason of concern not only in Romania, but also in the developed states which, even though have a high standard of life, are faced with an alarming rise in corruption at the level of the local and central public administration.
The criminalization of the act was generated by the emergence of new forms of relationships between the public and commercial sectors, which result in public partnerships, with a growth potential regarding new forms of conflict of interests which involve the personal interests and public obligations of the person in the public office.
The current study aims to present the jurisprudence of this type of criminality, nationally, starting with its juridical regime and the relevant legislation’s evolution in the area, continuing with the actual analysis of the conflict of interests.
