Professor Adam Graycar: 'Rich Country Corruption'


Professor Graycar

Corruption in rich countries is different to corruption in poor countries. While people in rich countries can go about their daily lives without encountering corruption there are significant ramifications when it is identified and exposed. This seminar will focus on dynamics of corruption and breaches of integrity, and some responses that can be put in place, and will discuss issues relating to public policy and administration.

This event is hosted by the Building Integrity Programme and will be introduced by Dr Nik Kirby, Research Fellow in Philosophy and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government.
