Description - Corruption, Politics and Development by Heather Marquette
In 1997, the World Bank announced a strategy to help its borrowers combat corruption, despite earlier claims that work of this kind violated the Bank's non political mandate. Despite many attempts to reshape corruption as an economic issue rather than a political one, the non-political mandate has never been satisfactorily addressed. Heather Marquette argues that the Bank should focus in its strengths and avoid the more controversial components of its anti-corruption programme, which threaten its credibility.
