This study investigates the problem of corruption from a social constructivist perspective in which strategic elites in society define the problem and negotiate solutions to it. Using a framework of discourse, the construction of corruption among five elite groups - bureaucrats, judges, politicians, industrialists and journalists - is examined using a wide range of data sources, including interviews with these elites, newspaper accounts, official records of an anti-corruption agency, legal documents and manifestos of political parties. The study also analyzes the politics of efforts to combat corruption and the resulting policy recommendations.
