Anticorruption Policies Revisited. Global Trends and European Responses to the Challenge of Corruption

Objective

The central objective of ANTICORRP is to investigate and explain the factors that promote or hinder the development of effective anticorruption policies and impartial government institutions. ANTICORRP directly addresses the objective in the Work Program by examining what the causes of corruption are, how corruption can be conceptualized, measured and analysed, what the impact of corruption on societies is and how policy responses can be tailored as to deal effectively with this phenomenon. The starting point for this project is the following: The knowledge about the very negative impact that corruption has on a great number of factors that are important for human well-being (economic prosperity, population health, life satisfaction, gender equality, social trust, political legitimacy, etc.) is now well established. At the same time, knowledge about how corruption can be successfully fought by political means is much less developed. While this project concentrates on corruption in Europe, ANTICORRP also has a global scope. The project will identify general global trends concerning corruption and select ‘over-performing’ and ‘under-performing’ countries in terms of their progress towards less corrupt governance regimes and conduct more detailed qualitative analyses of these cases. The project includes participants from anthropology, criminology, economics, gender studies, history, legal studies, political science, public policy and administration and sociology at twenty-one units in sixteen European countries. Research will be conduced using a various set of methods including historical case-studies, large-scale surveys and ethnographical approaches. The project will strive to ensure that the research findings are spread to policy makers and the general public by using high profile multimedia and data visualisation tools as well as research-to-policy workshops at different levels and for different target audiences.
