South Africa ranked as the 61st most corrupt country out of 168 countries in 2015 according to Transparency International. In this article, we explore the potential costs of current levels of corruption for the South African economy and their implications for the socioeconomic rights of South Africa’s poorest citizens.  Before explaining that the state could partially reduce those costs if it could tackle the corruption problem effectively, we first briefly outline the types of activities captured by the word “corruption”.
