Corruption is linked to a wide range of developmental issues, including undermining democratic institutions, slowing economic development and contributing to government instability, poverty and inequality. It is estimated that corruption costs more than 5 per cent of global GDP, and that more than one trillion US dollars are paid in bribes each year. This book unpacks the concept of corruption, its political and ethical influences, its measurement, commitments to combat corruption and ways that this is being attempted. Building on the research on the nature, causes and consequences of corruption, this book analyses international anti-corruption interventions in particular. It discusses approaches to focus efforts to tackle corruption in developing countries on where they are most likely to be successful. The efforts of the UK are considered as a detailed case study, with comparisons brought in as necessary from other countries’ and multilateral institutions’ anti-corruption efforts. Bridging a range of disciplines, Anti-Corruption in International Development will be of interest to students and scholars of international development, public administration, management, international relations, politics and criminal justice.

This book brings together leading African scholars and researchers from various academic disciplines, cultures, religions, and generations. It examines how to better mobilise and influence the actions, behaviour and attitudes of citizens towards accountability, transparency, and probity, in order to strengthen Africa’s integrity, equity, and sustainable development. It serves to deepen and strategically add to current efforts to combat corruption, and clearly advocates that fighting corruption is the business of everyone. The role of ethics in society and the presence of leaders who ideally should be ethical, effective, and empathic are also important. This volume shows that corruption robs the poor, and will serve to enrich the reader’s philosophy of life.

Internationale Friedensmissionen navigieren einen fundamentalen Zielkonflikt: einerseits gewaltsame Konflikte befrieden und gleichzeitig gute Regierungsführung fördern zu müssen. Wie diese Studie zeigt, führt mehr Aufwand für Peacekeeping keineswegs zu besserer Governance: Je robuster Missionen aufgestellt werden desto weniger gelingt ihnen die Förderung von Good Governance. Die Studie untersucht die Wirkungen internationaler Friedensmissionen auf Korruption in ihren Zielländern anhand ihrer Intrusivität. Der Autor stützt sich sowohl auf statistische Analysen als auch auf Fallstudien der Friedensmissionen in Sierra Leone, Côte D'Ivoire, Kosovo und Kroatien. Dabei zeigt er, dass intrusive Friedensmissionen Korruption eher befördern als einhegen. Demgegenüber sind Missionen mit begrenzten Peacekeeping-Mandaten eher geeignet, korrupte Praktiken einzuschränken, indem die Mission als unabhängiger Vermittler agiert und externe Ressourcenströme konditioniert.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0, Berlin School of Economics (Global Governance), language: English, abstract: During the last decades, corruption became an important topic. About twenty years ago the issue started to gain increasing attention. Different Organization engage in the fight against corruption. This is a remarkable change compared to the situation before the 1990s. Back then, most people did not see it as a pressing problem. Actually, it was more seen as an integral part of doing business. Most European countries allowed for tax deductibility of bribes. Even the World Bank, not constricted by such national concerns, was avoiding the topic. The changed perception of corruption has manifold reasons. Foremost, the geopolitical situation changed remarkably. During the cold war, governments, despite their corruptness, were supported to make sure they were not joining the communist bloc. After the end of this ideological competition, the imperative to tolerate and not to address issues like corruption and abuse of political power ceased to exist. Last, but not less important, the USA, not constraint by geopolitical considerations, had economic interest to put the topic on the agenda. While for US-companies bribing abroad was forbidden, most other developed countries used graft to initiate business abroad. Therefore, the US had a special interest to push for anti-corruption laws to level the playing field for its companies. From a western normative and moral point of view this fight against corruption on the international level seems to be a desirable development. However, if those were the only reasons for this crusade, it could be misperceived as another example of the imposition of rules from the Global North on the Global South. Then again, if corruption has negative impacts, other than moral concerns, it would legitimize this movement. Prevailing corruption might influence the development and economic performance of a country. In today`s perception development and economic performance includes a variety of indicators, which improve people`s quality of life. Therefore, after having narrowed the definition of corruption as it is understood within this paper, the correlation between corruption and some of those indicators will be examined. After this basic assessment, the relationship between economic growth, as one of the indicators for development, and corruption shall be illuminated closer. The question, whether there is a causal relationship and what the channels of this connection are shall be explored.
