Sažetak
Corruption seems to be rather inevitable issue in transitional countries and presents an extreme case of lacking honesty and confidence in society’s official structure. It also appears to be closely related with the existence of relationship-based markets and their (too) slow transformation into impersonal rule-based markets. The evidence shows that corrupt deals impose high transaction costs and that corrupt relations are often embedded in legal relations. There is a very strong rent- seeking aspect of corruption and no part of the world might be considered fully excluded from that. Yet, research in Eastern Europe clearly demonstrates that people tend to reward the help of others, especially when dealing with public sector employees. In addition, ordinary citizens consider petty corruption as a (legitimate) reward for given service and even if they use it often, they do not consider themselves as bribe-givers or bribe-takers. Besides corrupt deals per se, previously explained perception gap further contributes to the development of corruption. Contrary to the prevailing attitude of the ordinary citizens, business people rank corruption among top barriers for doing business. This paper presents the (perceived) corruption trends in Eastern Europe while trying to disentangle ambiguities, complexities and difficulties in its measurement. Therewith it contributes to the debate on corruption as one of the omnipresent informal practices, fine- tuning of its understanding and possibilities to address it in an efficient way.
