Serhiy Kudelia

Serhiy Kudelia takes an institutional approach to understanding corruption in Ukraine, arguing that as Ukraine’s institutional model has changed, patterns of corruption have changed along with it. Despite Ukraine’s turbulent post-Soviet evolution, neither the fact of corruption nor the extent of it has changed dramatically. This continuity he attributes to permissive conditions, in terms of weak institutionalization, and to powerful incentives for actors to engage in venality. His analysis is troubling in that it shows that political competition, the goal of democratization, tends to spur corruption on the part of leaders. He offers some suggestions for reform, including through changing the campaign financing laws.
