    Hur korrupt är en icke-korrupt stat? Teoretiska förväntningar och lokala eliters subjektiva bedömningar.2008In: Uppsats presenterad vid NOPSA i Tromsö, 6-9 augusti 2008, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sweden has traditionally been regarded as a country free from corruption. But since the 1990s several corruption scandals and critique of weak institutional control mechanisms have somewhat challenged this picture. The purpose of the paper is to: i) build a theoretical ground for the argument that corruption has increased in Swedish municipalities, and ii) explore if corruption is regarded as a substantial problem by senior members and officers in Swedish municipalities and if there is reason to believe that corruption has increased over time. The paper establishes that changes in the public sector, among else New Public Management reforms, have contributed to altered incentives for corruption, and indeed increased possibilities, for members and officers in municipalities. Empirical results from our survey of senior officers and members in all Swedish municipalities carried out in 2008 show that respondents do not consider corruption as widespread, which is true no matter whether respondents are asked about the situation in Swedish municipalities in general, activities and operations in the own municipality or own experiences of bribe attempts. But despite this respondents do perceive corruption as a substantial problem and judged from respondents’ own experiences one in 20 did experience corrupt offers. Finally, although it is not possible to establish conclusively, the paper discusses based on empirical findings whether corruption really is a widespread phenomenon and has increased over time.

    Public Corruption in Swedish Municipalities: Trouble Looming on the Horizon2008In: Local Government Studies, ISSN 1743-9388, Vol. 34, no 5, p. 595-608Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1990s, several public corruption scandals were uncovered in Sweden. This article focuses specifically on local corruption, and our purpose is to examine whether a case can be made that problems of public corruption in Swedish municipalities have increased. By applying instruments from the institutional rational choice framework, we reach the conclusion that there are indeed reasons to suspect that retrenchment initiatives and organisational reforms over the last two decades, often labelled 'new public management', have increased the risk of corruption. Although hard empirical data do not yet exist, the suspicion that public corruption in Swedish municipalities may have become an increasing problem cannot be disregarded. Hence, we conclude by calling for further empirical research in this field.
