About me

I have written extensively in the field of corruption. In my publications I focus on analysing the institutional and political process that facilitates the emerging of this phenomenon. I want to start off by highlighting the two main scholarly contributions that can be found in my publications, as follows: (1) a theoretical contribution points at the development of the term "legal bribes". With this concept I demonstrate how the electoral law facilitates the emerging of corruption while creating impunity. (2) A methodological contribution in a peer-reviewed article describes the process used to conduct mixed method research that relies on a nested analysis (LNA-SNA approaches). Currently, I am conducting research on tax avoidance.
