About the Book

This volume, a companion to the Asia Pacific Human Development Report Tackling Corruption, Transforming Lives, contains papers that take a bold new look at the complexities of corruption, including its prevalence in times of shortages and growth, how it hits the poorest the hardest, its ability to cross national boundaries and the difficulties of controlling the pathology once it has become entrenched. These papers, in addition, show the two-way links from corruption to human development and back to corruption. A focus on solutions that can improve people’s quality of lives makes this an especially useful reference not just for academics, development practitioners and the layperson but also for donors and those involved with policies.
