The Many Faces Of Corruption

Corruption… How can policymakers and practitioners better comprehend the many forms and shapes that this social pandemic takes?

From the delivery of essential drugs, the reduction in teacher absenteeism, the containment of illegal logging, the construction of roads, the provision of water and electricity, the international trade in oil and gas, the conduct of public budgeting and procurement, and the management of public revenues, corruption shows its many faces.

‘The Many Faces of Corruption’ attempts to bring greater clarity to the often murky manifestations of this virulent and debilitating social disease.

It explores the use of prototype road maps to identify corruption vulnerabilities, suggests corresponding ‘warning signals,’ and proposes operationally useful remedial measures in each of several selected sectors and for a selected sample of cross cutting public sector functions that are particularly prone to corruption… Technical experts have come together in this effort to develop an operationally useful approach to diagnosing and tackling corruption.

‘The Many Faces of Corruption’ is an invaluable reference for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers engaged in the business of development.
