Repeated corruption scandals and the efforts of the international
political community to find ways to counteract them have compelled
economists, anthropologists and political scientists to confront
corruption as a subject for serious academic research. This
textbook introduces students to the field of corruption analysis
and the challenges facing its researchers. The book explores the
definitional challenges, the problems of measurement and the
methodologies that underpin the standard corruption indices. The
key drivers of corrupt practice are identified and the arguments
used to understand the causes of corruption are outlined. The book
looks at what works in the fight against corruption, including
international conventions and organizations, and policy initiatives
at the national level. The role of third sector organizations, the
so-called "anti-corruption industry" and the work of citizen
activists and "armchair auditors" are also explored. Analysing
Corruption provides an authoritative and engaging introduction to a
subject that is the largest public policy challenge that the state
faces in many parts of the world. It is suitable for courses in
politics, public policy, public administration, development studies
and anthropology. It will also be of value to those working in NGOs
and charities helping to shape anti-corruption thinking.
