Seven Types of Corruption

Seven Types of Corruption

(p.100) Chapter 6 Seven Types of Corruption
Interpreting Corruption

Peter Larmour

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter looks at what the National Integrity System (NIS) studies can say about types of corruption across the region. It re-analyzes the reports of the surveys focusing on the types of corruption their authors report. The NIS researchers—academics and former officials—tended to adopt the World Bank definition of corruption as the “use of public office for private gain.” There are, however, twenty-five subtypes of corruption, which the chapter groups into seven broader types in order to draw some implications about preventing corruption. Under each type, it gives examples of the subtypes identified in the NIS studies, thus giving a broad overview of the pattern of corruption in the region.

Keywords:   National Integrity System, private gain, corruption subtypes, corruption remedies, corruption prevention, corruption patterns
