Corruption and the Legitimacy of Law: A Socio-Legal Perspective

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book is structured into three parts and nine chapters. The main thrust of Part I is to explore the key characteristics of the four major sub-systems of society- polity, community, culture and economy- and their impacts on the legitimacy of law in the first four chapters. Part II investigates the cascading effects of corruption on political, communal, cultural, and economic systems of society in four chapters respectively. The last part of this volume draws the causal nexus between corruption and the illegitimacy of law, putting forward possible response strategies. With discussions bridging legal, sociological, economic and political theories, this book will be a useful resource for a wide range of audiences in different disciplines, such as Law, Sociology, Political science, Economics, Development studies, and Public policy.
