About this book

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.

Reviews

“Kubbe and Engelbert have put together a fascinating volume on a very timely and important topic. Analysing corruption from a social norms perspective turns out to be both very innovative and productive in terms of substantial research results. This is a stellar book, simply a ‘must read’ for everyone interested in the complex issue of corruption.” (Professor Bo Rothstein, University of Oxford, UK)

“A ‘must read’ for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of what we characterise as ‘corruption’ and why. This book exposes the many interests, norms, and values that informally support corruption and opens up discussion on what needs to change for anti-corruption initiatives to work. Interdisciplinary, insightful and scholarly!” (Associate Professor Kath Hall, Australian National University)
