Controlling Corruption - Lessons Learned from Around the World

Lecture on corruption
Mar 22, 2012
06:00 PM to 08:00 PM
116 Katz Building

Robert Klitgaard

Robert Klitgaard, Professor and former President at the Claremont Graduate University and a leading expert on systemic government corruption, will discuss strategies that have brought it under control in a number of countries and how that experience might be applied to those countries that still suffer from it.

Klitgaard has advised many governments on economic strategy and institutional reform, and his consulting work and research have taken him to more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He has been called “the world's leading expert on corruption” (The Christian Science Monitor). In recent years he has served on the faculty of the World Economic Forum, the editorial boards of the Journal of Economic Literature and Theoria, and the Board of the International Development Evaluation Association. In addition to many articles, Klitgaard has written eight books on business and corruption.

This event is sponsored by Penn State School of International Affairs, Center for Global Studies and Smeal College of Business.
