Abstract

The papers tackles, from an evolutive and comparative perspective, the general issue of the state capture and administrative corruption phenomena, with specific reference to the South Eastern European states, as well as to the assessment of the perception upon these phenomena in the public health service in Romania. In this regard, the paper mainly uses the theoretical framework developed by the World Bank and turns to account empirical studies from the field literature or developed by the authors, regarding the assessment of the mentioned corruption phenomenon, in a South Eastern European and Romanian context. The analysis and research demarche refers to the compatibility of the anticorruption strategies in Romania with the general framework of these strategies promoted by the World Bank. Unlike other existent empirical studies, the ones used by the authors propose a new method of assessment, based on statistical instruments and processing, of the state capture and/or administrative capture level.

Keywords: state capture, administrative corruption, influence, lobbying, anti-corruption strategies
