The course at the Australian National University is an interdisciplinary introduction to the theory and practice of corruption and anti-corruption. It shows how different understandings of corruption suggest different remedies. Students will consider definitions, explanations and measures of corruption, and its links to development, politics and culture. The course will also consider ways of evaluating anti-corruption measures, including cleanup campaigns, anti-corruption commissions and NGOs.

After having taken the course, students are expected to be able to have an understanding of theories about the causes of corruption, an ability to apply those theories to anti-corruption practice, identify the theories implicit in anti-corruption practice, and evaluate various forms of anti corruption activity.

A brief bibliography for the course is also listed below.
