Corruption has been a major concern for contemporary state-building and development and is currently at the front of major political changes in several countries and regions. However, there is still very little space for debates on academic work on corruption from an interdisciplinary point of view. This workshop invites scholars from a range of disciplines – including anthropologists, economists, political scientists, and sociologists – to discuss their work and advance a common research agenda on corruption as a social problem. Furthermore, this workshop is conceived as a potential stepping stone for the creation of a network of researchers interested in corruption from different perspectives, which can spark vibrant discussions and future meetings to debate on this polemic and important topic.

This is a pre-conference workshop preceding the Sociology of Development Conference taking place at the University on October 17-19, 2019.
