“Money, it’s a crime. Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie”, wrote the Pink Floyd in their masterpiece The Dark Side of the Moon’s song Money. Syllogistically speaking, money do not always represent corruption and, likewise, corruption is not necessarily practiced through the (mis)use of money (“other utilities”, under article 318 of the Italian Criminal Code). But ordinarily, corruption and money do go along pretty well together – especially when speaking about slices of pies.
This book represents a journey through the current situation of corruption in different countries belonging to four different European macro-areas: the Mediterranean and Western Europe (here represented by Italy and Portugal); Central Europe (here represented by Hungary); Northern Europe (here represented by Finland); Eastern Europe (here represented by Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova). The aim of the publication is to provide a comparative study analysing how corruption is rooted in the examined countries, highlighting the governments’ different approaches in tackling the phenomenon, and finally to sum-up the findings of the study underlining some potentially efficient policy recommendations under a liberal perspective.
