Recognizing and incorporating such structures rather than ignoring and limiting them can help ameliorate corruption risks. Findings from research, if replicated and complemented through quantitative research, could... (More)

Recognizing and incorporating such structures rather than ignoring and limiting them can help ameliorate corruption risks. Findings from research, if replicated and complemented through quantitative research, could have important policy implications as to improve the shortcomings in transparency and accountability of the CCTP in Guatemala, as well as CCTPs in general.
