Abstract: Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has been cited as a key element for development and economic growth, especially for developing countries. While FDI is purported to have these benefits, researchers have also found that the benefits FDI brings varies according to the absorptive capacities of the host country. I argue that strong institutions mitigate the relationship between FDI and corruption because the structures and rules of institutions constrain the environment that foreign investors and public officials operate in, and institutional rules delineate the amount of autonomy public officials have over public resources. Thus, the stronger the institutions, the abler they are in capturing the benefits of FDI while keeping out the adverse side-effects. Using multivariate regression and comparative case studies, I find that stronger institutions negatively impact the relationship between FDI and corruption.
