dc.description.abstractCorruption in the public service sector is one of the greatest challenges for developing countries to fully democratize, a roadblock to creating a balanced social system prioritizing justice and equality and a detriment to economic growth. I argue that police corruption must be reformed in India for their political, social and economic advancement. After careful consideration of scholarly debates, corruption was defined as those actions that abuse public servant positions for private gain where they are in violation of the laws regulating their actions. This was then applied to India to dissect the ways corruption has plagued their history and is prohibiting their economic, political, and social advancement. Once the situation in India was adequately identified, a more global perspective was achieved using scholarly analysis from police journals and corruption reform books to see and overview of how corruption has been combatted internationally in Brazil, New York City and Singapore. Lessons extrapolated from both successful and unsuccessful attempts to reform corruption were then applied to the political context of India to produce a series of broad recommendations for their corruption reform.en_US
