Conference on Corruption @ The New School in NYC

The New School's Center for Public Scholarship presents the 30th Social Research conference
Thursday and Friday, November 21 and 22, 2013
The New School (Theresa Lang Student Center at 55 West 13th Street and the John Tishman Auditorium at 66 West 12th Street, NYC)

There is hardly anywhere one can look, in political or corporate life in the United States and around the world where corruption and the serious damage it causes is not painfully evident. At this conference, policy makers, historians, lawyers, and scholars will examine the private and public systems affected by rampant corruption and discuss how transparency and accountability protocols could serve to at least reduce, if not eliminate, the kinds of corruption we all live with.

The keynote address will be given by *Peter Eigen*, Founder and Chair of Transparency International and Honorary Professor of Political Science at the Freie Universität in Berlin.

Conference participants include James Jacobs, Michael Johnston, Sheila Krumholz, Alina Mungiu-Pippidi, Susan Rose-Ackerman, Bo Rothstein, Alan Ryan, Debra Satz and Richard White. The complete conference program and speakers' bios are available online.
