Corruption: maximising, socialising, balancing, and othering
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Technology, Department of Engineering Sciences, Industrial Engineering & Management.
2017 (English)In: The handbook of business and corruption: cross-sectoral experiences / [ed] Assländer, M. & Hudson, S., Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2017Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, four different theorizations of corruption are presented. The first concerns the principal-agent understanding of corruption. The second explains how a person is socialized into corruption. The third builds on philosophy and posits that corruption is degeneration from an ideal, presenting a multifaceted view of different goods and their respective corruptions. The fourth is inspired by psychoanalysis and explains why corruption is often externalized and seen as a feature of other people, companies, sectors, and countries. The article claims that to understand corruption fully without running into simplistic analyses, one always needs to reflexively consider various perspectives, of which these four are important examples.
