Course content

Develop your understanding of what corruption is, where and why it proliferates, and what can be done to counteract it.

You’ll address challenging issues of how different disciplines define corruption and how this can lead to different anti-corruption approaches. You’ll examine specific examples – from systematic abuses of power by parties, politicians and civil servants to small-scale, petty misdemeanours. The role of business can also be analysed.

Based in the world-leading Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption, this course remains the only full-time MA in the world analysing issues of corruption, anti-corruption and governance.
