How these two relate has not sys tematically been researched. This session takes as a starting point a Dutch -Indonesian project on the role of corruption in Dutch and Indonesian histo ries of state-formation and economic development, and has invited discussan ts who are experts of other Southeast Asian regions to reflect on the first findings, and this theme in a broader sense. Doing so, the aim of this ses sion is twofold: to discuss some early results from the Dutch-Indonesian re search project and to evaluate the role of corruption discourses in critica lly understanding Southeast-Asian colonial and postcolonial state-building and economic processes from a comparative perspective. The session explores the contexts of corruption as a normative framework to create, maintain an d challenge exclusive power structures in colonial and post independent pro cesses of state formation. It does so at intersecting moments of entangleme nt: around 1900 (late colonial state, norm-setting debates among the coloni zers); around WWII (independence, debates on good governance of the anti-co lonial nationalists against colonialism); during the Cold War (the authorit arian state, and the conditional norms of development aid); post-1990 (tran snational corruption; global corruption indices). Questions that will be ad dressed include:\n\n- What role did corruption and anticorruption play in t he development of a colonial normativity both in the colonies and in Europe in the late 19th and 20th centuries?\n- How were discursive stereotypes an d anticorruption policies used to (de)legitimize institutions?\n- What role did (anti-)corruption discourses play in Southeast Asia during the Cold Wa r?\n- What is the connection between colonial political structures and cont emporary notions of corruption?\n- What do today’s indices show in terms of governance; what is the weight of the past, and which past?
