Abstract

This panel deals with classical, yet very prominent topics of measurement, analysing forms, institutionalization and impact of corruptive and rent-seeking practices among political elites, in public offices and the business sector. The panel includes comparative analysis of institutional and legislative frameworks, their bidirectional relation with legal and illegal rent-seeking and the impact on economic as well as policy and political aspects of society. The panel features papers analysing corruption on subnational and cross-national level and across several sectors of the economy such as tourism and energetics. Moreover, the papers deal with differences in rent-seeking and corruption in various types of political and economic systems such as developed economies on one side (Spain, Sweden) and developing post-socialist economies (Georgia, Montenegro and Turkmenistan) on the other.
