Our findings support a U-shaped relationship providing evidence of the "grabbing hand" view at low to moderate levels of corruption and, supporting the "helping hand" view at high levels of it. In addition, market-seeking motives are found to have a positive moderating effect on this relationship. This study contributes to the long-standing debate about the effects of corruption on FDI.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9777||ISSN:||10909516||Rights:||© 2013 Elsevier Inc.
