Religion as a Fundamental Driver of Corruption

With the vast globalization of the world and fast-paced development of international business ties between different states, a country’s cultural history, and ways of governance play a big role in building international business relationships. One of the big risks for businesses longing to penetrate a foreign market is corruption (1). Thus, the relationship of corruption with religion, cultural factors, and development indicators are relevant subjects to examine. To address these issues, a study examining corruption as it pertains to religion is proposed. Keywords - Corruption, Globalization, International Business, Religion
