Abstract [en]

Corruption in politics and public administration is pervasive and difficult to eliminate. It has a strong effect on public attitudes toward government and is at the same time badly understood. A clear, comprehensive understanding of corruption is critical to the goal of ethical government that is trusted by the public. In this short and accessible text, Staffan Andersson and Frank Anechiarico demonstrate how the dynamics of life in organizations both generate corruption and make it difficult to prevent without undermining the effectiveness of government. They argue that how we define corruption, how we measure it, and how we try to combat it are strongly interrelated and should not be seen as separate issues. The authors demonstrate how this integrated approach, together with a focus on the damage caused by corruption to civic inclusivity and participation, can serve as an entry point for understanding the quality of democracy and the challenge of good governance. Using examples from mainly the United States and Sweden, Andersson and Anechiarico establish that recent anti-corruption reforms in public administration have often been narrowly focused on bribery (exchange corruption) and law enforcement approaches, while doing too little to other problems and forms of corruption. Corruption and Corruption Control: Democracy in the Balance will be of great interest to all students of politics, public administration and management, and ethics.

Abstract [sv]

Storbritanniens styrelseskick beskrivs traditionellt som inriktat på att skapa en kraftfull verkställande makt med få inbyggda kontrollmekanismer. Detta brukar benämnas majoritetsdemokrati eller Westminstermodellen efter det område i London där det brittiska parlamentet ligger. Utmärkande för styret är en monark som statschef med ceremoniella uppgifter, parlamentarism som tillsammans med majoritetsvalsystem och tvåpartisystem skapar starka regeringar och territoriet organiserat som en enhetsstat. Konstitutionen brukar också beskrivas som ”icke-skriven”, eftersom den inte är kodifierad i en samlad lag med särskild ställning. Dessa drag och landets utveckling mot demokrati är ett resultat av en lång historisk process med gradvisa förändringar. Flera av styrelseskickets särdrag är dock under förändring med fler inslag av maktdelning. Det gäller såväl förhållandet mellan den centrala och den subnationella nivån – vars folkvalda församlingar övertid tilldelats ökade befogenheter – som förhållandet mellan institutioner, där regeringen och parlamentets traditionella suveränitet har påverkats. Dessutom har Storbritanniens beslut att lämna Europeiska Unionen ytterligare bidragit till påfrestningar och nya frågeställningar kring maktdelningen mellan olika styrelsenivåer.

Abstract [en]

This article discusses the effects of standard corruption measurement, as used in comparativeresearch, for its accuracy in estimating and understanding corruption. Implicitly, standard measurementstreat corruption as a one-dimensional phenomenon (measured by a single score) that can varyin incidence between countries (or other geographical entities), but not in form. Such measurementsalso tend to equate corruption with bribery. This article argues that the degree to which onedimensionalbribery-focused measurements constitute a suitable proxy for corruption differs acrosscountries (i.e., the measurement discrepancy is not random across countries). In particular, thesemeasurements are ill-suited to capture corruption in established democracies with highly developedeconomies, where corruption is expected to center on gaining access to and influence within strongstate institutions rather than on bribery. Sweden, a “least-corrupt” case, is used to illustrate theeffects of relying on such measurements in such a setting, and to show that whereas bribery mightbe a relatively rare event, undue influence and interest conflicts can be a frequent occurrence.
