Corruption and Development: Some Perspectives

"Following a brief introduction and a section that conceptualises both corruption and development, the core of the monograph examines the complex dynamics that characterise the impact of corruption on development. Corruption has the following negative impacts: it distorts public spending, undermines efficiency, discourages investment and growth, undermines the quality of governance and places participants at risk of castigation by the international community. This monograph offers a perspective on the phenomenon of corruption and its impacts on development. It is considered conceptually, comparatively and through a South African lens."
