Administrative corruption

Summary

This themed issue comprises three articles written in response to the study 'Corruption in Dutch public administration', commissioned by the WODC and carried out by VU scientists Huberts and Nelen. The articles show that corruption is rarely punished and that, moreover, court punishments are generally mild. In addition, administrative corruption seems to have a rather low priority. Apart from the Dutch situation, the articles also discuss measures taken at the international level in the battle against corruption, as well as the extent to which account must be taken of cultural differences in combating corruption.
