This research program sets out to improve our understanding of political corruption in emerging democracies and how to fight it. In order to do so, it first reinterprets dominant scholarly views on the evolution of state autonomy in the developing world by focusing on the mechanisms surrounding interest-groups dominance. It then assesses how precisely interest-group dominance is linked to endemic corruption in developing states. Finally, the program looks at the intersection between domestic and international politics to estimate the conditions under which the fight against endemic corruption stands a chance of success.
