Resumen

PINEIRO, RAFAEL. Electoral Systems and Corruption: between Incentives and Dissuasion . Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.2, pp. 187-194. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2008000200008.

This research note analyses the relationship between electoral systems and corruption. First, it discusses the different theoretical conceptions that are implicit in the explanation of which electoral systems generate incentives for political corruption. Particularly, it stresses the paradox that the same electoral systems that dissuade corruption are those that boost personalization and electoral spending. Finally, the theoretical deficiencies are illustrated with public opinion data from the 2006 and the 2008 LAPOP-Chile surveys.

Palabras clave : Electoral system; corruption; public opinion.
