    Abstract: Scholars of corruption have come to a general consensus on the relationship between democratization and corruption. They agree that due to institutional developments propelled by democratization, corruption will eventually be reduced. China has been able to develop without democracy. In this thesis I challenge the influence of political regime type on corruption. Is democracy really necessary for the reduction of corruption?
    To find out the relationship between political regime type and contexts of corruption I compare the cases of Taiwan, a democracy, and the PRC, an authoritarian country. I analyze both using a model for the analysis of the causes and curbs of corruption by Quah. By comparing the cases we find out that they are similar in terms of the following factors that cause corruption: civil servant salaries and culture. We also find out that they are different in the following: red tape and opportunities for corruption, risk of detection, and genuine political will to tackle corruption. Additionally, we find that China has a peculiar pattern of anti-corruption measures in that there are two sets of rules governing the punishment of official malfeasance: the law and CCP Discipline. The latter can take precedence, thus creating an inequality in the rule of law.
    Overall, we conclude that these differences can be attributed to the differences in political regime type. Thus, in terms of corruption, political regime type matters.
