Introduction: Fighting corruption is at the forefront of any sound project for good governance: it is embraced as a goal by democratic governments in transition, promoted by major international financial institutions, measured by influential non-governmental institutions, and taken into account by investors. Yet, the anti-corruption campaign often seems to promise too much and account for too little. Corruption is readily put forward as the explanation for the failure of past economic development models and pointed to as the cause for a path dependence of economic stagnation. Moreover, it is depicted as a ?culture?, equally pertaining to public officials, business executives and the common citizen who are immersed in it as a normal practice. After 71 years of single-party rule, Mexico has begun a transition into democratic institutions, which has had profound consequences for the Mexican political system. The campaign against corruption has risen to a prominent position in the current political programs. However, corruption has been the focal point of active governmental policies long before the 2000 presidential elections. How do the new policies differ from the previous ones? What are the tangible developments? The conference seeks to promote a discussion on the relationship between corruption and democratic transitions on one hand, and corruption and economic development on the other. Is there a causal relationship between corruption and each of these themes? Panelists are invited to address these issues in general and discuss the implications for the case of Mexico.
