Research Article Corruption and the MDGs
In 2000 more than 180 countries committed to a set of highly visible development priorities to be achieved by 2015. Known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) these eight priorities cover a broad range of critical development issues ranging from poverty reduction, health and education to gender equality, access to clean water and environmental sustainability. By setting numerical targets for related indicators, the MDGs have evolved into a galvanising point for development research to identify the critical conditions and drivers that shape progress, or the lack thereof for specific development goals. This research agenda is more urgent and important than ever. With five years to go to the 2015 target date, progress reports indicate that achievements in many areas are not on-track and the world community is likely to fall short of its commitments.

Research Article Blog: Cracking the Myth of Petty Bribery
In this thought-provoking paper Eduardo Bohorquez and Deniz Devrim take a closer look at the concept of “petty bribery”. Using concrete evidence from Mexico they demonstrate that the impact of this type of corruption is anything but “petty” – it deprives individual citizens of their right to basic services such as health, education or water and exacts huge (monetary and non-monetary) tolls on the development of communities. At the same time, the use of the term “petty” signals an unwillingness to acknowledge the significance of this problem by policy makers.

DataSet Global Corruption Barometer
With more than 91,500 respondents drawn from 86 countries and territories around the world, Transparency International’s 2010 GCB, released on 9 December 2010, finds the poor to be disproportionately burdened by bribe demands.

Most people are willing to report a corrupt act when it occurs
