The Center for Public Scholarship is pleased to present the 30th Social Research conference, “Corruption,” on Thursday and Friday, November 21 and 22, 2013, at The New School in New York City.
Signs of corruption and the damage it causes are painfully evident in political and corporate life everywhere. Policy makers, historians, lawyers, and scholars will discuss the many systems undermined by corruption and the transparency and accountability protocols that could serve to reduce corruption, if not eliminate it.
Specifically, the conference will examine both U.S. and global aspects of the problem of corruption, including social and historical dimensions of corruption, the systems most at risk of corruption (governments, business, labor, and markets), and possibilities for reform.
Additional issues will be addressed in the publication of the Winter 2014 issue of Social Research, with case studies of corruption in Kenya, India, Russia, Latin America, and the United States.
