How to research corruption? Corruption and Anti-Corruption in Empirical Research: Critical Reflections on Concepts, Data and Methods

Research project

Short description

The project aims to facilitate collaboration and communication between disciplines that research corruption and spur critical reflections on

(a) the link between conceptualizations and methods in researching corruption;

(b) limitations and benefits of particular data and methods for corruption research; and

(c) ethical and security-related issues in applying different methods of researching corruption.

The goal is to develop resources, such as a handbook, website, and a podcast, which will foster critical reflections on appropriate data collection and research methods for investigating the chosen forms of corruption, taking into account practical and ethical issues.
