4th Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network
- Actualité Sciences Po
[langue : anglais]
The fourth annual ICRF, organized under the theme, “Varieties of (anti)corruption: Learning from the past to prepare the future” will take place on 13 - 15 June 2019, at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine. The Forum aims to bring together an interdisciplinary group of international junior researchers and practitioners working on corruption and anti-corruption issues.
This year’s forum will consist of interactive sessions focused on how corruption manifests differently in various contexts, and how, in a time of intense international and public pressure for reform, we can develop effective anti-corruption policies. Forum workshops will combine theoretical and empirical reflections on the role of political culture, institutions, existing social movements, international organizations, the role of political and economic elites, technological development and media for the dynamics and politics of corruption and the conception(s) of the opposite to corruption. The 2018 forum received over 200 applications from more than 45 countries and we anticipate matching or surpassing this high level of interest from participants for 2019.
Following the ICRN’s successful collaboration with the LIEPP during the Network’s genesis as well as with the organization of the 2nd ICRF held at Sciences Po in 2017, this cooperation continues with LIEPP’s financial and organizational support of the 2019 Forum. LIEPP funding in support of the 4th ICRF will primarily serve to finance the travel and lodging costs of a keynote speaker as well as several scholarship funds for junior researcher participants who are traveling from afar and would otherwise face financial obstacles to attending this event.
