    Chapter 2 Political Expediency and Mismanagement of Responsibility: An Italian Case.Italo Pardo - 2006 - Global Bioethics 19 (1):21-29.
    This chapter highlights how the encouragement of citizens' participation may in fact masquerade their rulers' attempt to create consensus for their ‘superior’ political project. It illustrates in ethnographic detail how rulers have symbolically used the public space, along with policies of urban regeneration, to win popular consensus and, thus, legitimise their position. The analysis addresses a central problem in the dynamics of democratic government, as it shows that lack of responsibility and superimposition of a political rhetoric on good governance eventually (...)

    Who is Corrupt? Anthropological Reflections on the Moral, the Criminal and the Borderline.Italo Pardo - 2013 - Human Affairs 23 (2):124-147.
    Drawing on historical and contemporary evidence from Great Britain and Italy, this article examines actions that fall under official definitions of corruption and actions that are not illegal but are widely regarded as morally corrupt. As a social anthropologist, I argue that when dealing with the complexity of corruption and abuses of power, we need to identify what aspects of the system encourage or generate illicit practices and what aspects could instead generate real change. It is imperative to assess the (...)
