Any transition to democracy has implications for corruption. This paper takes a contextual and procesual approach to the analysis of democratisation and corruption. It disaggregates some variables whereby democratisation can provide the context for the development of corruption and crime. This paper does not argue democratisation causes corruption and crime. Nor does it argue democratisation does not provide the social space for the reduction of corruption and crime. This paper concentrates on the areas in which democratisation provides an often complex environment for the development of corruption and crime.
