  • Final Report - CRIME AND CULTURE (Crime as a Cultural Problem. The Relevance of Perceptions of Corruption to Crime Prevention. A Comparative Cultural Study …)


This is the final report of the CRIME AND CULTURE research project aimed to develop means to optimise corruption prevention in the EU. The project proceeded from the assumption that the considerably varying perceptions of corruption, determined as they are by cultural dispositions, have significant influence on a country's respective awareness of the problem and thereby on the success of any preventative measures.

The document states the project's objective and how the work was organised into individual work packages, based on the countries under study. It later analyses data and findings for each case, it refers to the meetings organised and their discussion contents, before issuing summaries about the perceptions of corruption in the case study countries. Finally, it refers to the EU initiatives to fight corruption and presents dissemination actions varying from publications, presentations, lectures to media coverage and the internet.
