Thematic group:
Democracy and Governance

Start date: Jun 2010 (Completed)

Project staff: Tina Søreide

Susan Rose-Ackerman and Tina Søreide are co-editing the second volume of the International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption, to be published by Edw. Elgar Publishing by 2011. The first volume was published by Susan Rose-Ackerman in 2006.

This second volume of the handbook includes 19 chapters, all presenting new research on corruption. The contributors emphasize how the economic analysis of corruption must take account of the broader context within which bribery and self-dealing operate. Corruption as an economic phenomenon is related to several economic subfields—for example, public finance, industrial organizations, and the economics of crime. Exploring these links demonstrates that sensitivity to corrupt opportunities can help enrich our overall understanding of the interactions of markets and state bureaucracies. Most of the chapters point at policy implications.
