Show Summary Details


Explains how corruption is a major hindrance to the provision of global public goods, and how international attempts to control corruption, while not always necessarily successful, constitute a global public good in themselves. Explores the difficult incentives surrounding the production of the global public good of corruption control. It also provides a case study showing how an international civil society organization, Transparency International, has helped to build coalitions between governments and private corporations to control corruption in the international arena.
