dc.description.abstract In current literature, a comprehensive account of institutional corruption has not yet been adequately formulated. Philosophers tend to focus on particular manifestations of institutional corruption, presenting definitions and solutions that are tailored to that singular exhibition. This thesis sets out to provide a comprehensive account of institutional corruption, establishing its conditions as related to just institutions. Accordingly, Chapter I presents an outline of corrupt acts and people, and the significance of individual corruption as related to its institutional counterpart. Chapters II and III establish a conception of institutional corruption as a deviation from a baseline of integrity, and shows how this definition encompasses multiple forms of the phenomenon. The importance of this endeavor is its ability to explain why certain institutional practices are in fact unjust, despite being legal or not considered unethical. The latter chapters outline what can be done to combat this insidious injustice, and how responsibility for addressing the phenomenon should be distributed. Throughout the thesis, the example of the pharmaceutical industry as related to health care and medical knowledge is used to exemplify first the established features of institutional corruption, as well as how efforts for reform should be enacted in order to restore lost institutional integrity. en
