Good governance and anti-corruption

19-21 April 2021 | Executive seminar

This course defines corruption from a development perspective (as in Acemoglu and Robinson's bestseller Why Nations Fail) and introduces an evidence-based approach to developing anti-corruption strategies fitting local contexts. The course draws on state-of-the-art methods and instruments generated by the two top corruption research projects ANTICORRP and DIGIWHIST funded by the European Union. It is also an introduction into the growing anti-corruption European and global community. What you will learn:

• How to diagnose the prevalence of corruption (context diagnosis);

• How to measure it across countries and time, so as to assess effectiveness of policy interventions;

• How to deconstruct its mechanism for different policy areas (market competition, health and education) and understand the policy failures which generate corruption;

• How to design a stakeholder analysis for corruption problems and emerge with a coalition of the willing;

• What the repertory of tools is, from which you can select the right one for your pro-change coalition;

• If (and how) external interventions against corruption can be affective.
