The problem of corruption is of central significance for the developmental prospects of poor countries. Corruption undermines development by siphoning off resources for infrastructures and public services and by weakening the legitimacy of the state. The volume will appeal to academics and policy-makers concerned with problems of governance and public management in developing countries, as well as specialists working on corruption and designing anti-corruption strategies.
This volume of interdisciplinary contributions analyses the problem of corruption and draws on a wide variety of theoretical traditions and approaches, reflecting the fact that corruption cannot be understood through the lens of economic or political analysis alone.
