Despite great advances in corruption studies over the last three decades, there is still a lot to learn about corruption and anti-corruption policies. The key question currently driving innovations in corruption studies is why anti-corruption reforms do not work. This volume offers a selection of papers from the international seminar series on innovations in corruption studies in Europe and beyond held by the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London between October 2015 and March 2016. The purpose of the series, which brought together researchers of the project ‘Anticorruption Policies Revisited: Global Trends and European Responses to the Challenges of Corruption’ (ANTICORRP), was to highlight innovations in the field of corruption studies regarding theory, methodology, analysis and policy. The papers here represent a sample of the wider academic debates but focus on integrating expertise relating to Central and Eastern Europe into a comparative framework. The outcome reflects the openness of the authors to work across area and discipline and to ensure cross-fertilization between area studies and the social sciences in general.
