CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Corruption... How can policymakers and practitioners better comprehend the
many forms and shapes that this social pandemic takes? From the delivery of
essential drugs, the reduction in teacher absenteeism, the containment of
illegal logging, the construction of roads, the provision of water and
electricity, the international trade in oil and gas, the conduct of public
budgeting and procurement, and the management of public revenues, corruption
shows its many faces. The Many Faces of Corruption attempts to bring greater
clarity to the often murky manifestations of this virulent and debilitating
social disease. It explores the use of prototype road maps to identify
corruption vulnerabilities, suggests corresponding "warning signals," and
proposes operationally useful remedial measures in each of several selected
sectors and for a selected sample of cross cutting public sector functions that
are particularly prone to corruption and that are critical to sector
performance. Numerous technical experts have come together in this effort to
develop an operationally useful approach to diagnosing and tackling corruption.
The Many Faces of Corruption is an invaluable reference for policymakers,
practitioners, and researchers engaged in the business of development.
