Corruption and Development
This seminar explores the relationship between corruption and development. Does corruption impede development? If so, what if anything can be done about it? We examine differences in conceptualization and measurement of corruption, explore cases of corruption in politics and the bureaucracy, explore concepts such as state capture, patronage, and clientelism, and assess various types of anti-corruption measures and reforms.
