Corruption, Anti-Corruption and Governance

In 2012 Dan Hough, director of the Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption will be publishing a book entitled 'Corruption, Anti-Corruption and Governance' (Palgrave, 2012). Prof. Hough, who completed this research whilst a Visiting Fellow at Renmin University of China in Beijing, analyses why so many anti-corruption initiatives fail and what we can learn from these failed attempts.  The book puts the anti-corruption legislation and discourse in six very different cases - Bangladesh, Germany, Kenya, Poland, South Korea and the UK - under the analytical microscope before suggesting ways forward in the fight against corrupt practices.
