The Chr. Michelsen Institute and the Norwegian Institute of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), organised a workshop on 'corruption research' in Oslo 19-20 October 2000. The workshop aimed to assess the current analytical approaches to corruption, with the specific objective of exploring present knowledge on corruption (approaches, causes, effects, etc.), present the major controversies within and across disciplines, and identify the areas in most need of further research. This report summarises both the papers presented and the major issues discussed, emphasising the challenges identified for further research.
