Based on twelve years of research on corruption across the globe, this book presents
four case studies which illustrate the cultural, cognitive, and social implications
of corruption. With diverse approaches and empirical case studies, it examines the
socio-institutional, organizational, and cognitive-hermeneutical aspects of the
cultural theory model of corruption.
This timely Handbook unpacks the underlying common factors that give rise to corrupting environments. Investigating opportunities to deliver ethical public policy, it explores global trends in public administration and its vulnerability to corruption today, as well as proposing strategies for building integrity and diminishing corruption in public sectors around the globe.
