Controlling corruption in Europe

Alina Mungiu-Pippidi

Picture description
Type: Edited Volume
Year: 2013

This book – the first policy report from ANTICORRP – shows the multiple consequences of corruption in EU Member States. Including an analysis on fiscal deficit, vulnerable employment, gender equality, government spending, tax collection, electoral turnout, and brain drain, the report proves that corruption is not a marginal phenomenon, but a central factor to understanding the EU’s current state. It looks at the levels of government impartiality and corruption in the public services: education, health, and law enforcement. It also discusses the best and worst European performers at national and regional levels and includes a multi-country governance survey.
