Why debt sustains corruption in Greece and vice versa
Tuesday, 28 July 2015 | World Economic Forum

Corruption is typically unobserved in formal data, so it is difficult to document its extent. Since the work of Schattschneider (1935), theories of rent seeking and corrupt legislative bargaining – further developed by Ferejohn (1986) and Persson (1998), and outlined in the book by Persson and Tabellini (2000) – link up the observable effects of corruption to rent-extraction mechanisms.

*A Comparative Study


 There is no question about the negative impact of corruption on development. Corruption reflects a democracy, human rights and governance deficit that negatively impacts on poverty and human security. Corruption endangers the stability of democratic institutions, discriminates in the delivery of government services and thus violates the rights of the people, the poor in particular. Corruption also poses a major obstacle to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). As such, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) considers its activities in the area of anti-corruption as essential to​ the strengthening of democratic governance in support of poverty alleviation and human rights protection. This also follows the broad consensus in the international community that good governance is essential to achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction. Reducing corruption also increases the effectiveness of aid in UNDP’s partner countries.


Since 1997, UNDP has been involved in accountability, transparency and integrity (ATI) programmes as part of our interventions to strengthen democratic governance. In past years, UNDP’s interventions in the area of ATI and anti-corruption have evolved from principally supporting awareness-raising and advocacy to advising partners through holistic approaches grounded on early lessons and internally developed policy tools.

Washington, DC 
October 15, 2007

An editorial that appeared in the US newspaper, The Wall Street Journal on October 11 wrongly suggested that the World Bank has not taken corruption in Cambodia seriously. In fact quite the opposite is true.
Governance has been a long-standing focus of the World Bank’s Cambodia country strategy and it was in fact World Bank regional staff working on Cambodia who first raised concerns in 2004 about corruption in projects there. Subsequently, these staff joined with the Bank’s Department of Institutional Integrity (INT) to undertake a fiduciary review that identified specific problems causing leakages in World Bank projects. INT then investigated the indications of corruption that arose from that review.

Avoiding the Resource Curse

 Many resource-rich countries have fallen prey to the natural resource curse [1]. But a handful of developing countries have managed to escape it. This note examines four resource-rich countries and the policies they have followed since the beginning of the 1970s. One. Nigeria, is a well-publicized case of oil wealth impoverishing rather than enriching the economy. The other three-Indonesia, Malaysia, and Botswana-have achieved impressive economic gains despite their resource abundance.
