Inhalt Corruption obstructs sustainable development, disrupts development programmes’ efficacy by abusing and diverting aid and investment, wastes funds for vital services such as education and health, fuels humanitarian crises, veers leaders towards following their private rather than citizens’ interests, ruins trust in public institutions, and increases inequality. As such, combating corruption in the developing world has been a formidable challenge and has taken a prominent place in the agenda of the international development community for the past two decades.

This module examines the causes, consequences and approaches to fighting corruption. It is organised in two parts. In the first six weeks, the module looks at how corruption is and can be understood. How is corruption defined? How does corruption impact development? What are the drivers of corruption? How can corruption be analysed as a networked phenomenon? Is there a gender-corruption nexus? What role does culture play in corruption? How is corruption measured? After gaining an understanding of what corruption is and what its drivers are, then we move on to how corruption can be combated. We look at the historical evolution of anti-corruption in global development and introduce the various approaches to anti-corruption, including tech-based approaches. We also delve into how anti-corruption works in practice, drawing on case studies and how anti-corruption outcomes are measured. Finally, we look to the future: what are the trends in (anti-)corruption?
Lernziele By the end of the module, students should be able to:
● Conceptualise the definition of corruption, the types of corruption and the implications of corruption;
● Discuss competing concepts of understanding corruption;
● Reflect critically on how to measure corruption;
● Examine the relevance of (anti-)corruption in the development field;
● Have a differentiated understanding of the various anti-corruption approaches, their implementation and efficacy.
