Old regime habits die hard: clientelism, patronage and the challenges to overcoming corruption in post-authoritarian Mexico (ANTICORRP study)
This paper focuses on local understandings of corrupt practices among indigenous groups in rural areas of Mexico and links the exercise of particular communitarian practices and social norms among those groups to the effectiveness of social accountability mechanisms in the Mexican health sector.
This study was undertaken as part of the Basel Institute's contribution to ANTICORRP WP4 "the ethnographic study of corruption."
