About The Book

This book provides a multidisciplinary interrogation of the global anti-corruption campaigns of the last ten years, arguing that while some positive change is observable, the period is also replete with perverse consequences and unintended outcomes. Contributors to the volume unravel the normative assumptions, power relationships and problems of intervention within anti-corruption campaigns in development theory and practice; evaluate and deconstruct donor policy in the area of anti-corruption; and look at new institutional initiatives to build transparency and accountability in government.
