  • Overview

    This course will focuss on understanding and interrogating corruption and anti-corruption in the new global order. The idea of fighting corruption to achieve greater political, economic and social development marked the past decades. Governments, international organisations and civil society alike join forces to curb this phenomenon across the globe. Nonetheless, it is fair to argue that it is still problematic, and thus, a need for a better understanding of the theoretical and policy implications of anti-corruption strategies.

    We will explore political, economic, and cultural dimensions of corruption, drawing upon political science and international development literature. Also, learning key concepts in corruption while contextualising international politics since the 80s: political conditionality, good governance, non-state actors, and the international anti-corruption community, among others.
