Empirical research has paid extensive attention to the harmful effects of corruption on society. Studies have established that corruption hinders economic development, increases economic inequality and poverty, and undermines citizens well-being in general. This panel focuses on the political consequences of corruption. While there is a growing consensus about the negative effects of corruption on individuals’ political attitudes, the debate is not settled as to whether and why these are further reflected (or not) on political behavior. We welcome empirical papers that focus on any type of political consequences of corruption. We especially encourage submissions that: (1) examine its attitudinal consequences; (2) address the behavioral implications of corruption (accountability, turnout, protest etc.) (3) analyze the potential reasons why the attitudinal change may (not) translate into a behavioral change; (4) introduce new empirical approaches to the study of the consequences of corruption.
