Abstract

This paper relates the concept of organizational social capital (OSC) with the literature on corruption and anticorruption policies. Theories that analyze organizational social capital have always stated that positive and productive interactions and relationships among members of an organization lead to better performing public administrations. The article develops a theoretical framework that shows the positive effects that OSC has on diminishing the level of corruption within the public sector. A case study is provided to prove that current anti-corruption policies focus on factors that actually decrease OSC within a public administration.
