School of Law, Politics and Sociology

Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption

As one of the newest research centres in the School of Law, Politics and Sociology, the 'Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption' (SCSC) takes an interdisciplinary approach to analysing what corruption is, where and why it flourishes and also what (most importantly) can be done to counteract it.

Created in 2011, the SCSC aims to be a world-leading centre of corruption analysis and will work closely with organisations such as Transparency International in developing recommendations and proposals for combating corruption both in the United Kingdom and further afield.

The Head of the SCSC is Professor. Dan Hough - do contact him on for further information on this exciting new venture.
