The anticorruption package

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper discusses the various metaphors used to describe the emerging global anticorruption regime, metaphors such as anticorruption industry, landscape, assemblage, package, gift. It is argued that anticorruptionism now has a life of its own, separate from the ostensible project of 'fighting corruption' We need to study the anticorruption 'package' as it is transmitted or donated around the world. The world of anticorruption is its own world.
