Though on the one hand abstaining from any moral condemnation and normative judgment appears an essential imperative for the success of a study on corruption, on the other hand it would be awkward—entrenched behind the presupposition of neutrality characteristic of research in the social sciences—to brush aside the axiological dimension of the phenomenon.
