Open access book release: Discourses on Corruption: Interdisciplinary and Intercultural Perspectives

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest edited volume in our ICAS:MP Sage Series : “Politics and Society in India and the Global South“.  The book is titled: Discourses on Corruption: Interdisciplinary and Intercultural Perspectives. 

The editors are members of our thematic module on Normative Conflicts and Transformations

Kalpana Kannabiran, Independent Sociologist and Lawyer, Hyderabad, India

Florian F. Hoffmann, Professor of Law – Department of Law, Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio)

Through different case studies, the volume investigates corruption in the Global South (with a focus on India and Brazil) and the West (especially Switzerland) to gain a more nuanced view of the phenomenon. The essays in this volume are organised into two parts: the first part covers conceptual questions related to corruption discourses from different perspectives (such as economic ethics, social capital theory and literature); the second part details the complexity and diversity of corruption practices within countries and between countries and regions, providing different interpretative frameworks, which in turn flow into discourses on corruption.
