Global Integrity’s International Director, Marianne Camerer, shares a link to an archive of coverage and papers addressing corruption in South Africa. All together, the collection spans 11,000 pages assembled in the course of Marianne’s PhD dissertation.
This collection of research material from South Africa, a new democracy, covers the period from 1994-2006 and includes a range of policy documents on governance and corruption. These include political cartoons; newspaper articles; parliamentary records; Auditor General and Public Protector reports; conference proceedings; policy and strategy documents; corruption surveys and court records of high-profile corruption trials, pertaining to the South African arms deal. The material was collected for my PhD dissertation in Political Studies from the University of the Witwatersrand on “Corruption and Reform in Democratic South Africa”. It includes my own published research in this field from 1996 as an applied policy researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, a leading think tank in South Africa and will be a useful resource for scholars and practitioners both in Africa and more widely interested in how new democracies set out to tackle the corruption issue.
