Work package 2: History of corruption in a comparative perspective Andreas Bgenholm [email protected] Department of Political Science University of Gothenburg www.qog.pol.gu.se Objectives To provide a grounded historical/developmental perspective of several key concepts and practices related to the perception, detection, and handling of corruption across several regions and periods.

To conduct several case-studies illuminating continuity and change in the history of the relations of public morals and government, origins of mechanisms of checks and balances, the impartiality and autonomy of magistracies. In the cases of early modern Northern European countries special emphasis will be laid on the reforms in different areas in a short period of time in order to come to terms with corrupt behavior. To develop a research network of historians working on the topic of corruption across periods and regions and encourage them to examine their work vis-vis developments in other disciplines. www.qog.pol.gu.se Projects on pre-modern history of corruption

www.qog.pol.gu.se WP 2 updates New recruitment: Andr Vitria (UNIAM) Two literature review deliverables (September) WP-meeting in Amsterdam in October www.qog.pol.gu.se Discussion How can history help us to combat corruption today?

What lessons may we draw from history? Comparability: Patterns and trajectories Are concepts, such as corruption and Weberianism, relevant historically? What is success and what is evidence of success? Is Getting to Denmark teleological? www.qog.pol.gu.se A couple of problems Not much research on corruption history done so far Assess the amount of corruption, i.e. the key concept

and the dependent variable in the modern studies. Assess when equilibria are changed, i.e. finding the most relevant periods to study. Lack of good indicators Weberianism as a proxy for good government and lack of corruption Court cases, convictions, citizen complaints etc. Sources www.qog.pol.gu.se
