Handbook Of Global Research And Practice In Corruption

Adam Graycar, Russell Smith

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    Corruption has been a feature of human behaviour since the beginning of time. It has been a part of the structure of human relationships, and very much bound into the way people live with each other and distribute status and power. While some say that patronage and rent-seeking have lubricated social relationships, there is sufficient evidence to show that it is the poorest who are hurt when this behaviour is institutionalised. It is even more distressing when the behaviour is unpredictable, irregular and random.
