Delegitimization of Anticorruption Agencies

  • Savannah Riberio MacEwan University


My thesis deals with the delegitimization efforts of political actors against successful anticorruption agencies (ACAs). The Romanian National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) will be used as a case study. I ask what kinds of legitimization/delegitimization efforts are made by political actors when an ACA is successful.
