Inhoud

This book is the result of a conference organised by the Maastricht Centre for Human Rights, held on October 22-23, 2009 in Maastricht. This event hosted scholars from different disciplines, including law, criminology and political science, who considered the various ways in which corruption and human rights violations are intertwined. This linkage has been rarely discussed thus far, which is surprising given the detrimental impact of corruption upon human dignity.

The present book offers the reader a broader view of the human rights approach towards combating corruption - including the arguments of those who oppose this approach - while it also considers how corruption may violate individual civil, political, economic, social and cultural human rights. Moreover, the volume addresses the theme of corruption and human rights by looking into specific topics, such as disaster relief, gender equality, the work of international financial institutions, and the functioning of police organisations. In this way, the book provides insights which are valuable to academics, human rights institutions, and anti-corruption practitioners alike.
