The course starts with a brief discussion of definitions and theories on corruption and anti-corruption. After that, the course will touch on three specific areas: global anti-corruption legal frameworks; local, national and international anti-corruption policies and enforcement; and finally, anti-corruption strategies and practices in the private sector. The course will conclude with a workshop on country case studies where the students will present one example to be discussed in class. This course is designed so students with focus in law, international relations, political science and business and administration can have an interdisciplinary approach to anti-corruption, gauging a general understanding of the law, the policies and the practices both in the public and the private sector.
