    The Transformation of Transparency – On the Act on Public Procurement and the Right to Appeal in the Context of the War on Corruption.Thomas Taro Lennerfors - 2007 - Journal of Business Ethics 73 (4):381-390.
    This article discusses the alleged anti-corruption effects of procurement reforms by presenting the European Act on Public Procurement and the increasing number of appeals filed by suppliers due to perceived misevaluations of tenders and perceived impairments of transparency. The delays and costs that arise from this right to appeal are studied in the Swedish context with the aim of contributing to the debate on corruption in two ways.

    Ancient Corruption in Modern Organizations.Thomas Taro Shinozaki Lennerfors - 2007 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 18:61-66.
    This paper develops the references to an “ancient understanding of corruption” that some authors writing about corruption make. The paper reviews these texts and develops an understanding of corruption related to Alasdair MacIntyre’s critique of modernity and relates it to the anthropological tradition of gift-giving stemming from Marcel Mauss. It shows how the ancient understanding of corruption can be used by reading interviews of project managers working at a Swedish orderer of construction work. In this context the central concept is (...)
