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

This course is the only full-time Masters in the UK addressing issues of corruption. 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.
