GIS Dossier: Corruption and the global balance of power

Corruption can be a catalyst for political change, as in Latin America, or the basis of a rent-seeking regime, as in Russia. But in rare instances, it can also affect the ebb and flow of global geopolitics.

In China, meanwhile, the political, military and financial impact of corruption could alter the trajectory of a rising superpower.
