International Anti-Corruption Actors (861M9)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

A number of international anti-corruption actors have emerged in the past few decades. However, fighting corruption through international and regional initiatives has delivered partial results at best. The module aims to critically evaluate and examine:

  • how effective international anti-corruption actors have been in reducing corruption
  • why many of these efforts have failed to deliver substantial results.
