Title:Transnational economic crimes and corruption: a note on the Nigerian connection
Author:Adogamhe, P.
Periodical:Nigerian Journal of International Affairs
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:Werlin's generic definition of corruption as explained by Peter Hodgkinson (1997), viz. the partisanship that challenges statesmanship, provides the conceptual framework for an analysis of some of the structural and cultural features of corruption in Nigeria and an examination of the corrosive effects of corruption and the further undermining of Nigeria's already ailing political system. The Nigerian experience clearly demonstrates how systemic corruption can lead to expanding realms of illegality and criminality in society. The climate of near impunity is one of the leading causes of the increased incidence of transnational economic crimes and corruption, which pose a threat not only to Nigeria's national interest, but also to the global economic order.
