The Hidden Order of Corruption: An institutional approach
Donatella della Porta; Alberto Vannucci
Type: Monograph Year: 2012
The Hidden Order of Corruption investigates the hidden order of corruption, looking at the invisible codes and mechanisms that govern and stabilize the links between corrupters and corruptees. When corruption is exposed, unknown aspects are revealed which allow us to better understand its structures and informal norms. This book is theoretically informed and based on empirically sound research on a central challenge for democratic quality and as such presents an important study of corruption in democratic countries.

Exploring the case of the cocaleros of the Chapare, this article argues that more emphasis should be placed on mechanisms that are internal to the movements, such as: (a) the resonance of other political experiences at home and abroad, (b) internal struggles for ideological hegemony, and (c) the political formation of their grassroots.
