The Internationalisation of Corruption

Scale, Impact and Countermeasures


Corruption scandals hit the headlines all around the world, across a diverse range of institutional, organisational and cultural settings. Corruption is a major obstacle to political, social and economic development - its 'internationalisation' has had profound implications for counter corruption efforts. The Internationalisation of Corruption provides readers with an analytical framework with which to approach the issue of corruption in international affairs, from the perspective of international studies as an interdisciplinary space in the social sciences. The authors also examine the implications of corruption in world politics, international business and global finance; how corruption is linked to transnational crime networks; and the consequences of corruption for international development and world health.
