Blurb/Shorttext:
The present book explores the nature, forms, causes, costs and remedies of administrative corruption in the service-delivery sectors of Bangladesh – a developing country of South Asia. A behavioural approach was adopted in conducting the study on 10 service-delivery sectors of Dhaka city. The study showed that there were marked differences between the perceptions of service-recipients and service-providers in their assessment of officials as well as their attitude towards corruption. The findings supported the view that Bangladesh society was caught in a cycle of vice and vengefulness, abetted by 'demonstration effect' and 'bandwagon effect' of corruption; and behavioural aspects of corruption were as important as structural and functional ones for a proper understanding of administrative corruption in Bangladesh. The book provides valuable insights by an insider into the causes, costs and remedies of corruption in a tradition-based developing society like Bangladesh and would prove invaluable for researchers, academics and practitioners working in the fields of public policy and public management.
