Land corruption in Vietnam has stubbornly resisted concerted anti-corruption efforts. This study aims to shed light on corruption in land development government-private partnerships (GPPs)—a rapidly growing type of land investment. By analysing corruption in land development using the social construction approach, this study aims to generate new insights into the causes of corruption in land development projects, and propose fresh sets of policy-relevant insights that will lead to new anti-corruption measures.
