Concern over corruption in the Third World, and in Africa in particular, is
receiving serious international attention. From being widespread it became systemic, and corruption in Africa has now reached cancerous proportions, with a demonstrable negative impact on the development process in the region. It undermines good government, fundamentally distorts public policy, leads to misallocation of resources, harms private sector development and economic growth, and significantly hurts the poor. Combating corruption therefore becomes a high priority in the quest for African development. Bringing together a distinguished cast of contributors, the book provides an authoritative and clear analysis of the theory, practice and impact on the development of corruption in Africa and offers a wide range of country case studies outlining its deleterious effects, the factors which have combined to hamper past efforts to combat it, the solutions required to succeed in the future and the context of their application in Africa.
