About this book

This volume analyzes the corruption phenomenon in Africa and how to combat it from a governance perspective with illustrated case studies from three of the most corrupt of those nations covering, respectively, the Southern Africa region (Swaziland); the Eastern Africa region (Kenya); and the Western Africa region (Nigeria). Drawing on the available data, research literature, and field practice experience, the nature and extent of corruption are identified; the factors influencing the causes and determining the consequences of corruption are delineated; measures that have been put in place to control corruption are outlined and discussed; and new policy solutions are proposed and advocated to more effectively control the corruption menace in Africa.

Reviews

“The most important contribution of this book is its emphasis on institutions: the latter are very important in the fight against corruption. No anti-corruption project can succeed without effective and fully functioning institutions.” (John Mukum Mbaku, Distinguished Professor of Economics, Weber State University, USA)

“Prof. Hope has produced another significant book on Africa. It’s a must read for all those concerned with, or interested in, corruption and governance issues on the continent.” (Bornwell C. Chikulo, Professor of Development Studies, North-West University, South Africa)
