Corruption and Norms : Why Informal Rules Matter, Hardback Book

Corruption and Norms : Why Informal Rules Matter Hardback

Edited by Ina Kubbe, Annika Engelbert

Part of the Political Corruption and Governance series


This book focuses on the role of norms in the description, explanation, prediction and combat of corruption.

It conceives corruption as a ubiquitous problem, constructed by specific traditions, values, norms and institutions.

The chapters concentrate on the relationship between corruption and social as well as legal norms, providing comparative perspectives from different academic disciplines, theoretical and methodological backgrounds, and various country-studies.

Due to the nature of social norms that are embedded in personal, local, and organizational contexts, the contributions in the volume focus in particular on the individual and institutional level of analysis (micro and meso-mechanisms).

The book will be of interest to students and scholars across the fields of political science, public administration, socio-legal studies and psychology.
