Each year Global Integrity published a series of essays on the practice of corruption as viewed from the bottom up. The stories are written by local journalists worldwide, one essay per country. The Corruption Notebooks is intended as a counterpoint to the heavy econometrics focus typical to the governance field (see today’s announcement of the latest data mashup by the Millennium Challenge Corporation for a fine example of the dominance of the economists over other approaches to analysis).
You can read the 2006, 2007 and 2008 books here (free!) but below the jump we’ve got a preview from this year’s stories.
This preview comes in the form of a presentation by our director Nathaniel Heller given to Corruption Forum 2009 at the University of Calgary.
