En rankings efterskalv: Om Transparency International och svensk korruption
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
What impact and effects are created by the placement of an international ranking? Could it be that a top rank is detrimental to an entire country's efforts to fight corruption?
This bachelor thesis in political science is about Swedish corruption. In essence, so questioning the Transparency International's indexed rankings that placed Sweden in third place. Issues concern since if the third placement has created nonchalance and a careless mentality in Swedish government and in particular in the municipal operations. Research results show that Transparency International's rankings have low validity and low reliability and that the government is not acting sufficiently to prevent and fight corruption. In these municipal corruption cases, there may be discerned a certain degree of negligence mentality.
The research findings are not entirely clear for what the purpose desired. But could it mean that corruption is happening in secret?
