Institutional Corruption

Institutional corruption refers to a situation in which a public institution is diverted from its original purpose, its effectiveness is deliberately weakened, or it is otherwise compromised in a manner which limits its ability to achieve its intended purpose.

 

For example, a former executive of an oil company becoming the head of the Environmental Protection Agency and rolling back environmental protections in order to benefit his former employer would constitute a form of institutional corruption called regulatory capture.
