Course Octet Stream Political Corruption in Asia (Michigan State University)
The course addresses both theoretical and empirical aspects of political corruption, and focuses the discussion on the context of East Asian countries. The importance of systematically understanding corruption in Asia is nearly self-evident as the post-war histories of most Asian countries, including China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines, have been marked by numerous corruption scandals. The recent coup in Thailand and the mass demonstration in Taiwan have provided striking examples of the extent to which deep-seated corruption can pervade and shake a young democratic regime.

Course VCS/ICS calendar Ethics in American Politics (University of Florida)
The problem of unethical behavior involving elected officials is a perennial concern in American politics. Since the early days of the Republic, policy makers and ordinary citizens have sought to control unethical conduct such as bribery and treason. In recent decades, the focus of concern about political ethics has shifted to the problem of "conflicts of interest" between elected officials' private interests and their public duties, and to the regulation of campaign finance. This course will examine theories of political ethics, important episodes of corruption, and the regulation of political ethics through elections and legislation. The main focus will be on the ethics of legislators, but we will also look at presidents, governors, and other public officials.
