Building upon the body of existing literature that has established the importance of norms in understanding why genders interact with social phenomena differently, and how gender plays a role in most aspects of corruption, this cutting-edge book expands the fields to explore the nexus between norms, gender and corruption.

Making a timely and innovative contribution to all three streams of research, the book dives deeper into the role of norms in understanding the relationship between gender and corruption. An international, multidisciplinary group of experts combine global qualitative, in-depth case studies with large scale quantitative analysis to demonstrate the complementary use of different methods in the fields of gender, norms and corruption. Considering gendered differences in attitudes towards, and experiences of, corruption, the chapters examine political and institutional participation in corruption, looking closely at gender representation, stereotypes, and norms-based barriers. Analysing norms from different perspectives, with the main focus on social norms, this forward-thinking book makes a convincing case for why norms should be included in the research agenda on gender and corruption.

Interdisciplinary in scope, this insightful book will prove invaluable to students and scholars of gender politics, social policy and sociology, and law, regulation and governance. It will also prove a useful reference guide to policymakers concerned with the relationship between gender and corruption.
Critical Acclaim
‘I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the complex relationship between gender equality, corruption and good governance. It clearly shows that the inclusion of women in positions of power is no “quick fix” to reduced levels of corruption. The chapters give new insights on how social and political norms specify the room open for women to maneuver in society.’
– Lena Wängnerud, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

This excellent collection is a much-needed inquiry into still relatively unexplored debates around gender and corruption. Spanning many countries and different types of corruption, and furthering conceptual clarity as well as offering empirical case studies, the book is a must-read for anti-corruption scholars and practitioners.'
– Elizabeth David-Barrett, University of Sussex, UK
