Enacting Anticorruption: The Reconfiguration of Audit Regimes in Contemporary Vietnam
The article examines the enactment of anti-corruption and reconfiguration of audit regimes in contemporary Vietnam. The general Vietnamese term for corruption is "tham nhúng," which is a combination of avarice and harassment. Redirecting material goods and granting bureaucratic favors that could be recalled reportedly became a way to manage uncertainty in chronic shortages of Vietnam's centrally planned economy. It is stated that reforms known as "Renovation" have cut Vietnamese poverty.
