Political Economy of Corruption and Good Governance (Lafollette School of Public Affairs, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

The seminar has a strong policy orientation: it considers the state of cumulative knowledge on corruption as a policy issue that demands action both within countries and globally by a wide range of players.
