Previously, as vice president of the OECD working group on bribery in international business transactions, he was one of the drafters of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention of 1997. Professor Sacerdoti is a prolific author in his fields and teaches arbitration and international trade and investment law as an emeritus professor at Bocconi University in Milan.
