Theorizing Corruption

Khanafiah, Deni and Situngkir, Hokky (2005) Theorizing Corruption. [Departmental Technical Report]

Full text available as:



The aim of this paper is to gain the broad explanation of corruption using simple computational model. We elaborated further the model of corruption described previously in Situngkir (2003b), with some additions in model’s properties. We performed hundreds of experiments computationally using Swarm and constructed the explanation of corruption based upon these results. We show that corruption should be understood as complex social-phenomena, which relates not only with economical aspect, but also with many other social and anthropological aspects.
