Abstract:

While many scholars have conducted research on various aspects of corruption in China over the past 13 years, there is, to date, no comprehensive analysis of the anti-corruption measures or an evaluation of their effectiveness. The aim of this monograph is to address this research gap by analyzing in turn China's policy context, its perceived extent of corruption, the major causes of corruption in China, the anti-corruption measures initiated, and an assessment of their impact. The concluding section addresses the question of whether China will be able to succeed in minimizing corruption and provides some suggestions for enhancing the effectiveness of its anti-corruption measures.
