Abstract

In this second chapter of the two-chapter review on corruption research, we start with a discussion of the consequences of corruption. We follow up with the fundamental causes of corruption that are identified in the literature, which also serves to anchor the subsequent section that examines the recent advances on the policy levers designed to fight corruption using experimental methods. We end with some thoughts on avenues for future research.

Keywords: Corruption, lab experiments, review
