RESEARCHING THE ROLE OF CIVIL SOCIETY AND MEDIA IN CURBING CORRUPTION: A NEED FOR A MORE INDEPTH INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH Print E-mail

Mateja Rek

Abstract

In last decades we have faced a growing number of national and cross-national surveys gathering data on all three concepts that we are dealing with – civil society, media systems and corruption. In addition to quantitative and qualitative empirical evidence concerning each individual concept also a number of theoretical conclusions and insights have grown immensely. What is also needed is to explore and reflect on the available data (and where necessary produce new one) with an objective to build a theoretical framework for analysis of the impact of civil society and media systems in fighting corruption and focus not just on one individual concept but on the vibrant interplay among them and how they function in different cultural, social or political settings. The aim of this article is to reflect on the concepts of corruption, civil society and media and their peer relations, provide a short review and reflection of the state of the art in the field and outline possible future agenda that would enable us to better understand interconnectedness of these concepts.

Key words: corruption, media, civil society
