While there is an extensive literature on political scandals, most of it largely concentrates on exposés that are the result of intra-elite fights, that is, of dynamics that are the outcomes of conflicts within the political camp. In contrast, this chapter seeks to highlight a subtype of political scandal that originates in civil society initiatives. The fact that the origin of the exposé is external to the political system makes the dynamics of such scandals more difficult to control by governments than those that are expressions of conflicts within the political field.
