Prosecution as Corruption Control: Paradigms of Public Integrity in Context
Type of Work
Wayne Law Review
The effort of prosecutors to reduce corruption nationwide is part of a twentieth century paradigm that is being replaced by a new perspective on public integrity. The organizational context of this traditional response to corruption--including prosecution--provides an explanation for an effort that has not reduced corruption substantially, but has had a deleterious effect on the quality of public goods and services. Organizational factors, including the influence of bureaucratic structure and professionalized public integrity, will be put forward in this article to explain the intensity of the twentieth century paradigm, the perceived need to sustain the paradigm over a long period of time, and its influence on public administration.
