(p.151) Chapter 9 Conclusions
Interpreting Corruption

Peter Larmour

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter considers the ways that anti-corruption campaigns have been evaluated, by insiders and outsiders, at the implications of different interpretations for policy, and draws some conclusions about the relationship between the corruption literature and the Pacific Islands evidence. Corruption is an old and persistent problem of government, after all. The aid donors and international financial institutions want something to be done about corruption in countries they deal with. So do many Pacific Islanders. So do many Pacific Island politicians, though people may doubt their commitment. For these leaders and activists in particular, this chapter draws some insights about relativism, evaluation, and interpretation.

Keywords:   anti-corruption campaigns, corruption, policy interpretations, anti-corruption policies, corruption literature, relativism
