ELECTIONS AND CORRUPTION: INCENTIVES TO STEAL OR INCENTIVES TO INVEST?
This year’s guest is Assistant Professor Mihály Fazekas, Central European University, School of Public Policy. The seminar is open for all and free of charge. Please note that the maximum capacity is 30 seats.
Despite the fact that most political systems around the world now hold regular multi-party elections, we know little about the effect of elections on political corruption. To address this gap in the literature, we employ a multi-method research design—combining unmatched and matched quantitative comparisons with a qualitative small-N study of Indonesia and the Philippines—to analyse a novel government contracting dataset that provides objective measurements of corruption.
We serve lunch from 11.30 to 12.30 – this is optional and requires registration. Please register for lunch here.
