​​​​​​Further Reading

For both generally interested and researcher alike, we offer a (brief) list with some relevant materials on the subject of corruption (in the public sector). The scope of this list is purposefully broad and connects as well to the Framework of Analaysis of the project as outlined elsewhere on this page. The list includes both theoretical as well as empirical analysitical works. Sources range from academic to media journalism to professional publications. Please note that sources are either in Dutch or English. New literature will, if relevant, be added continuously.
