Chapter 16: Corruption in border administration

David Jancsics


Corruption in border administrations is a unique form of corruption. A special combination of social and organizational factors makes these public organizations particularly prone to corruption. This chapter focuses on the main types of border corruption, the key factors, the most important variables and the presumed relationships among them; in other words, classifications (what), explanations (why) and mechanisms (how) of corruption in border administrations. The chapter also attempts to integrate concepts from different disciplines, such as petty corruption, police corruption, workplace crime, informal networks and brokerage, that are relevant to understanding the phenomenon.
