Patterns of Corruption

Abstract : The ambiguities that characterize the economic significance and impact of corruption make it necessary to develop a coherent and more satisfactory analytical framework. We argue that the institutional structure that governs the interactions between players and, more particularly, public and private actors is a decisive factor of corrupt practices and largely influences the nature of corruption. On this basis, we propose a taxonomy of the different corruption patterns as a function of two institutional parameters, namely the structural features of the interest intermediation systems and the degree of institutional stability.
