Discourse Analysis of Corruption

Instituting Neoliberalism Against Corruption in Albania, 1998-2005

«’In post-communist Albania, anti-corruption reforms produced what the World Bank once called the best public administration institutions in the region, yet Albania is still considered one of the most corrupt states in Europe. Kajsiu’s book resolves this apparent paradox by convincingly showing that the discourse of corruption has less to do with sanctioning illegal behavior and more with politically legitimizing far-reaching, market-based reforms.’ Besnik Pula, Princeton University, USA ’Anti-corruption discourses have long been at the centre of both academic debates and policy proposals in the Western Balkans. Focusing on the case of Albania, Kajsiu's excellent book offers a lucidly argued and sophisticated critique of the way in which such discourses have served to legitimise a neo-liberal order detrimental to an authentic renewal of the democratic public spirit. Those seeking to understand the pathologies of politics in the region will have a great deal to learn.’ Lea Ypi, London School of Economics»
