language English
duration 1 week

The Second Interdisciplinary Corruption Research (ICR) Forum “How to conceptualize corruption? Understanding corruption to design effective policies” aims to bring together international young researchers working in the field of (anti-)corruption. Keynote speeches, workshops and presentations will focus on the conceptualization and theoretical underpinnings of anti-corruption policies.
The ICRForum 2017 will offer room for exchange and new ideas on how corruption definitions change across time and space. These discussions will combine theoretical and empirical efforts to conceptualize specific occurrences of corruption, such as systemic corruption or political corruption etc., and empirical work aiming to identify the roots of the problem. Furthermore, based on this jointly elaborated understanding of corruption, we seek to propose improvements for existing anti-corruption policies and develop ideas on new anti-corruption strategies.
