The purpose of this study is to collect the relevant data and to formulate the theoretical background of corporate crime from a Central-Eastern European perspective. One of the main goals of the study is to explore and elucidate the complex interrelationships between corporate crime and the Hungarian market economy’s functioning. The different approaches for defining white-collar and corporate crime are summarised. An overview of the theoretical background of such crime is given. The general economic situation in Hungary is discussed, along with various available data, in order to examine the extent of corporate crime in Hungary. A detailed guideline for the empirical study of these crimes is also presented. Celem tekstu jest zebranie danych oraz sformułowanie z perspektywy Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej podstaw teoretycznych dla lepszego rozumienia przestępczości związanej z działalnością przedsiębiorstw (corporate crime). Artykuł ma za zadanie zgłębienie i wyjaśnienie złożonych relacji zachodzących między tego rodzaju przestępczością a funkcjonowaniem gospodarki rynkowej na Węgrzech. Przeanalizowane zostaną różne podejścia dotyczące definiowania przestępczości związanej z działalnością przedsiębiorstw oraz przestępczości białych kołnierzyków, przedstawiony zostanie także przegląd założeń teoretycznych dotyczących popełniania tego rodzaju czynów zabronionych. Tekst omawia generalną sytuację gospodarczą Węgier i na jej tle przedstawia dane obrazujące możliwy zakres przestępczości związanej z działalnością przedsiębiorstw na Węgrzech. W artykule prezentowane są także szczegółowe założenia i wytyczne dotyczące empirycznego badania tego rodzaju przestępczości.
