Description

The 1990s have seen an upsurge of interest and concern about the problem of political corruption. These papers examine, in a range of national contexts, the relationship between democratization and combating corruption. Are the two processes ultimately in conflict?

Reviews

'Lucid and interesting … provides both the student of corruption and the seasoned policy maker with evidence that the simplistic notion that democractisation will combat corruption needs re-examination. This collection certainly provides a positive step in this direction.' - Journal of Development Studies

'Unlike most studies on corruption which base their data on hearsay and gossip and give no insight into the internal dynamics of corruption at country level, this contribution gives concrete data on assertions made.' - Development and Change
