The ECPR Standing Group on (Anti-)corruption and Integrity brings together scholars from different disciplinary, national and cultural backgrounds to further promote and deepen academic knowledge on: (i) corruption, an issue of increasingly significant public and political concern across the globe; (ii) on the strategies and policy solutions that seek to address the problem; as well as (iii) on the evolving concept of public integrity, both as an end in itself and as a corrective to the dominant anti-corruption approaches of the last quarter century that have delivered disappointing results. The perceived stagnation of existing work and approaches, coupled with the ever-increasing recognition that corruption poses a threat to political trust and stability and underlines a growing need to move (anti-)corruption studies in a new direction. There has been a growing number of new developments in this regard, both in policy and research, thereby making the foundation of this group very timely, but there remain core questions that need to be addressed.

Aims & Objectives

The Standing Group offers new perspectives on the interaction between public problems and public policies, between political trust, perceptions and behavior, between public decision-making in the international sphere and domestic policy actors, or between public officials and social groups that seek influence. Such cross-disciplinary work will be significantly facilitated by the existence of a thematic standing group that brings together different academic traditions.
