Political Corruption and Organizational Crime, The Grey Fringes of Democracy and the Private Economy, edited by Elizangela Valarini, Markus Pohlmann, Subrata Mitra

Summary
Level of compliance - one of the most important prerequisites of good governance - varies widely across countries of the Global North and the less developed, Global South. Acts of non-compliance, such as electoral irregularities, dubious deals between private and public sectors, questionable role of the justice systems and financial scandals, though they vary greatly across countries, are an omnipresent reality of contemporary life. This volume has brought together a number of case studies of such deviant behavior in political, juridical and corporate fields, from several countries of Asia, Europe and South America, within a common framework. Instead of a moral approach based exclusively on the legality and illegality of the act, the authors of these essays dissect non-compliance analytically, taking culture and context into account. They argue that, while criminal and corrupt dealings deserve to be exposed by all means from an ethical point of view, seen from an interdisciplinary angle, one needs to probe deeper into the dynamic that leads to such non-compliance with the law in the first place. The Editors Elizangela Valarini is a postdoctoral researcher at Max-Weber-Institute of Heidelberg University. Markus Pohlmann is Professor of Sociology at Max-Weber-Institute of Heidelberg University. Subrata Mitra is emeritus Professor of Political Science at Heidelberg University, and Adjunct Professor, Dublin City University, Ireland
