Abstract

控制腐敗是提升國家治理能力現代化的重要內容,也是社會科學研究長期關注的話題。由於腐敗現象所具有的極高隱蔽性和敏感性,以及為了深入探討腐敗治理研究中的重要前沿問題,如何運用有效的研究方法取得高質量的數據和成果是一個重大挑戰。近年來,實驗方法在腐敗前沿問題的研究中得到廣泛運用,但學界對該方法的特性和優缺點仍然缺乏全面和準確的認識。基於2000至2019年這20年間在SSCI期刊上發表的運用實驗方法研究腐敗的198篇論文的分析發現,同腐敗研究的傳統方法相比,實驗方法可以為腐敗研究提供可觀察的數據,較清晰地展示因果機制,有助於更好地理解和分析腐敗現象並協助制定反腐敗策略。實驗方法不僅適用於腐敗研究,為探索腐敗治理的前沿問題帶來方法論上的啟示,對關於國家治理的其他研究也有借鑒和參考意義。
Controlling corruption is important for improving the modernization of national governance and has drawn the attention of social science studies. However, due to the clandestine and sensitive nature of corruption, and in order to effectively deal with major frontier issues in corruption studies, it is methodologically challenging to obain high-quality data and research output in corruption studies. In recent years, experimental methods have become increasingly popular in exploring frontier issues of corruption research. However, the academic community still lacks a good understanding of the features and pros and cons of these methods. By analyzing 198 SSCI-indexed journal articles from 2000 to 2019 that use experimental methods to study corruption, this article finds that compared with traditional methods in corruption studies, experimental methods may provide more observable data, reveal clearer causal mechanisms for understanding corruption, and help enhance anti-corruption studies, but also provide methodological enlightenment for other research areas relating to public governance.
