Corruption is a universal phenomenon. However, many societies have managed to counteract its negative effects through public policies and sustained social efforts on transparency and prosocial values. This article seeks to examine the micro-institutional arrangements of the mining areas of the departments of Antioquia, Córdoba and Bolívar, and their relationship to corruption. The results of the fieldwork suggest that the formal and informal rules and community attributes of the mining regions under study encourage corrupt practices, particularly through the loss of trust among their people. © 2015, Universidad Externado de Colombia.
