Corruption of institutions

Get in touch with us: facebook, instagram, twitter

Corruption of institution is a principle of non-transparent act aiming to personal or group raise to power within an institution or entity, thus affecting everyday life of an individual or the community.

Corruption of institution is one of the most discussed types of corruption since it is often associated with corruption among politicians, political parties, and other political institutions. However, our focus is mainly on non-political institutions or entities which are frequently shaping the lives of both the individuals and that of the communities (due to the daily basis interaction between the individuals and such entities/ institutions). Among them, there are institutions from sectors such as education, pharmaceutical, military, media, police, sport, and the European Union institutions. The intense lack of transparency of such institutions, the lack of freedom of the press, censorship, the excessive degrees of bureaucracy associated with the institutional activities, the principles guiding the individual or specific group access to power (which, in fact, describe the very principles of the democratic society) often add to embezzlement of public funds, fraud, gross waste, misallocation of resources, the discrepancy between budget allocations and actual purchased materials, to name but a few of the  most common examples of corruption in this sector.
