  • Titill er á ensku How and why FIFA got so corrupt
  • Bakkalár
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    First of all when writing about corruption you need to define something that scholars don’t agree on what is and secondly corruption is by its nature something that is hidden especially if it is done successfully, so put that together it makes for an challenging but very interesting thing to research. Scholars though do agree on what crimes constitute as corruption, nepotism, patronage, legislative conflict of interest, bureaucratic conflict of interest, fraud, kickbacks, bribery, theft and abuse.
    Trying to take all the definitions of corruption to make a one working definition is next to impossible but by using all of them we get a better understanding of what corruption entails. I looked into different reasons why corruption can occur and I split it into three frames of reasoning. One is deterrents reasoning while the next looks into the incentives and lastly I looked at social capital through the feminist theory. So I look at variety of reasons why and how the corruption within FIFA has gotten so bad. I looked at how FIFA as an organization works and how it supports Lastly I looked at deterrents to corruption, even though there are more deterrents available than I specify here, I focused on those FIFA could and should try to install into their organization if they honestly want to change.
