You can't understand the world today if you don't understand corruption. Every day, we see high government officials resigning, we see governments changing, we see hundreds of thousands of people like you and me standing in squares, holding up signs, and often risking their lives to protest corruption. That's why I created this course.

It's critically important to the health of our societies to understand what people are protesting against: we want understand corruption. This course is designed to teach you what corruption is, what the causes of corruption are, about the effects of corruption, and about corruption control.

We'll be talking about this from a global perspective using examples from all over the world. And we'll also be talking about from the perspective of countries, governments, businesses, citizens, and the person on the ground. At the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of why the world is changing the way it's changing right now. And if you're in a position to make some of those changes - to make decisions about corruption, you'll be able to make better decisions.

Who is this class for: This course is designed for anyone who is interested in learning about corruption; the course material is aimed at the advanced undergraduate level.
