ISD 3400: Corruption and Development (2024-2025)

View all ISD 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 interlocking 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 courses of actions for different contexts. We aim to combine analytical and managerial dimensions of the problems into effective diagnosis and action. Typically offered: Winter.
