Course Syllabus


How often is an anti-corruption agenda used for political reform? Does it really matter in terms of generating political will and how we can measure it? What kind of anti-corruption strategy should we define as a successful strategy? What indicators could we offer to describe anti-corruption capacities of states and separate entities? Is it possible to transfer good practices in this field from one country to another? Why does anticorruption reform fail? The focus of this course is on understanding the questions mentioned above in comparative perspective.
