Global Corruption


Laurence Cockcroft: Author of Global Corruption - Money, Power and Ethics in the Modern World.

Corruption is a key issue which relates to economic development, income distribution and the credibility of political institutions. Laurence asked the question: Why is corruption so prevalent after fifteen years of international action, much of which has translated into legislation and regulation at the national level? He responded by analysing the main drivers of corruption and identify the roadblocks to making progress.

Susan Rose-Ackerman: Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence with joint appointments between Yale Law School and the Yale Department of Political Science.

International Actors and the Promises and Pitfalls of Anti-Corruption Reform Policies; to control corruption will always be controversial and contested, especially when anti-corruption measures are imposed or supported by international actors—most notably aid and lending bodies, global non-profits, or international treaty regimes. The talk considered feasible options for international bodies operating under severe political and financial constraints.
