The pervasiveness of corruption imposes substantial and widespread societal costs, impeding economic development, limiting the efficiency of public services, and weakening political institutions by undermining trust in government. The term ‘corruption’ is understood in ways that are sometimes culturally specific, and cover a broad range of practices. The causes and consequences of corruption have been contested in various literatures. The purpose of this course is to subject the topic to systematic study, combining insights from several different disciplinary perspectives, including political science, economics, sociology, and public management. The course deals with the nature, causes and consequences of corruption; measurement and analytical frameworks; and some common corruption control tools and strategies.
