Routledge Corruption and Anti-Corruption Studies


About the Series

The series features innovative and original research on the subject of corruption from scholars around the world. As well as documenting and analyzing corruption, the series aims to discuss anti-corruption initiatives and endeavors, in an attempt to demonstrate ways forward for countries and institutions where the problem is widespread. The series particularly promotes comparative and interdisciplinary research targeted at a global readership.

In terms of theory and method, rather than basing itself on any one orthodoxy, the series draws broadly on the tool kit of the social sciences in general, emphasizing comparison, the analysis of the structure and processes, and the application of qualitative and quantitative methods.

The series welcomes submissions from established and junior authors on cutting-edge and high-level research on key topics that feature in global news and public debate. To submit book proposals, please contact the Editor, Helena Hurd ([email protected]).
