Abstract

Corruption is a relationship of power and influence, existing within, and taking its form from specific environments of opportunity. Opportunity is, in turn, designated by the aspirations for such a relationship, and structures and processes at work towards its regulation. Both the creation and blocking of corruption opportunities are consequences of corruption control. Corruption regulation does not progress from prevention ideology to operational strategies in terms of total control, and therefore the regulatory space within which corruption and control interact becomes a construction of dependence.
