Not Signed; Daily life in Africa is governed by the 'petty' corruption of public officials in services such as health, transport, or the judicial system. This remarkable study of everyday corruption in three African countries investigates the reasons for its extraordinary prevalence. The authors construct an illuminating analytical framework around the various forms of corruption, the corruptive strategies public officials resort to, and how these forms and strategies have become embedded in daily administrative practices. They investigate the roots of the system in the growing inability of weakened states in Africa to either reward their employees adequately or to deliver expected services. They conclude that corruption in Africa today is qualitatively different from other parts of the world in its pervasiveness, its legitimations, and its huge impact on the nature of the state.

Inhaltsangabe: This detailed study of everyday corruption in three different African countries highlights its alarming prevalence. The authors analyze the various forms of corruption; the corrupt strategies public officials resort to; and how these forms and strategies have become embedded in the daily administrative practices of the state. The authors investigate the roots of the system, notably the growing inability of weakened states in Africa to reward their employees adequately or deliver the services on the scale expected of the state in the age of structural adjustment and collapsing commodity prices.
