Speaker information

Laurence Cockcroft, Laurence Cockcroft is the author of Global Corruption: Money, Power and Ethics in the Modern World
Susan Rose-Ackerman, Susan Rose-Ackerman is the Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence with joint appointments between Yale Law School and the Yale Department of Political Science

Laurence Cockcroft: Corruption is a key issue which relates to economic development, income distribution and the credibility of political institutions. LC will ask the question: Why is corruption so prevalent after fifteen years of international action, much of which has translated into legislation and regulation at the national level? In response he will analyse the main drivers of corruption and identify the roadblocks to making progress.

Susan Rose-Ackerman: International Actors and the Promises and Pitfalls of Anti-Corruption Reform Policies; to control corruption will always be controversial and contested, especially when anti-corruption measures are imposed or supported by international actors—most notably aid and lending bodies, global non-profits, or international treaty regimes. The talk will consider feasible options for international bodies operating under severe political and financial constraints.
