Corruption is a crime that has existed since ancient times and no society in the world is free of corruption. Initially corruption took simple forms, such as bribery, and continued to grow in complexity into organized white-collar crime. In everyday life we often find, for example in handling documents or taxes, there are people who bribe officials so that their interests are facilitated. Likewise, for example when someone wants to carry out a construction that requires various permits, many elements then carry out extortion under the pretext of “cooperation” or “helping” to shorten the licensing process.This paper discusses the aspects and dynamics of the sociological processes that exist in corrupt behavior. This presentation began with several examples of corruption incidents in various fields in Indonesia, followed by theories and sociological perspectives on corruption. This paper also discusses the sociological characteristics of the perpetrators of corruption and various efforts to strengthen elements that can prevent corrupt behavior. The recommendations for both research and intervention measures are presented in closing.
