GDEV 4950: ST: Corruption & Development (2022-2023)

View all GDEV classes

Corruption is one of the greatest obstacles to social, economic, and political development around the world. The United Nations, thus, has included anti-corruption among the inter-locking Sustainable Development Goals (to be achieved by 2030). This multidisciplinary course introduces students to the causes and consequences of corruption along with the main definitions and measurement of corruption. We explore strategies for the effective prevention and mitigation of corruption across a range of organizational, sector-wide, city, and national contexts. Drawing lessons from successful cases and considering the UN rules and SDG guidelines on combating corruption, we explore the possible course of actions for different contexts. We aim to combine analytical and managerial dimensions of the problem into effective diagnosis and action. May be repeated for credit up to 5 credits.
