About the publication
Governments, businesses, civil society, regional and international organisations in the Global South have developed various initiatives to promote integrity and transparency. However, these practices and experiences are often underrepresented in research and in the international corruption studies curriculum that remains oriented mainly to the western legal and public administration corpus.
This edited volume aims to address this significant imbalance by promoting knowledge dissemination on the Global South specifically, contributing to decolonising corruption and anti-corruption studies, by looking at forefront topics in single case and comparative studies.
For those interested in a joint chapter, we can facilitate collaboration by pairing academics from two or more countries to explore the possibility of working on theme-based, comparative chapters.
Please send your 600-word chapter proposal, in English, to email@example.com by October 1st, 2021.
The chapters will be between 6000 and 8000 words in length (including references). Two academic publishers have already expressed interest, but we intend to publish the volume where we can maximise the impact and visibility of the volume.
Submissions should include authors’ information (names, affiliations, emails, and short bios). We especially encourage young scholars from the Global South to apply.
