Abstract

Corruption has fierce impacts on economic and societal development and is subject to a vast range of institutional, jurisdictional, societal and economic conditions. Research indicates that corruption’s predominantly negative effects have arisen to a massive transborder threat while creating high obstacles to sustainable and prospective development. It is this paper’s aim to provide a reassessment and a comprehensive state-of-the-art survey of existing literature on corruption and its antecedents and effects. A particularly strong focus is put on presenting and discussing insights resulting from empirical research.
