Corruption Networks: a Graph-game Approach
Mathematics
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
Our work examines corruption from the perspective of its network nature. Although sometimes individual corrupt agents may be encountered, we believe that the structure of corrupt conspiracies is key for understanding problems of corruption emergence. In this study we combine methods of network and game theories and create an original model. Two specific models are presented. Bureaucrats are represented as the nodes of a graph, and their behaviour is defined by a rational choice in a specific game. The outcomes of the game vary depending on the graph structure. Our results are drawn from comparative analysis of different networks.
