    How does government corruption work and what effects does it have? Equally importantly, what constitutes corruption in any given society, and how do we recognize corruption’s inverse legitimation? The panel seeks to address these questions from a range of methodological and disciplinary perspectives. Papers discuss, among other topics, local perceptions of government action; the conditions for its validity in particular places; debates in legal, scholarly, or popular work about what constitutes corruption; as well as research analyzing recognized corruption and its effects. We hope this panel will lead to a stimulating discussion about both the corruption in government and the malleability of the very concept of corruption.
