|Subject Overview:|| |
Contrary to what is sometimes said and thought, corruption is, at its core, a species of moral wrongdoing or of unethical behaviour. While many examples of corrupt activity are also examples of illegal activity, it is not always the case that corrupt activities are illegal, or even that illegal activities are corrupt. This course examines the nature, causes and moral implications of corruption, as well as strategies that can be applied to combat corruption. Since the focus of the course is corruption in general, rather than corruption in any specific context, examples and cases will be drawn from a range of roles and professions, in both the public and private spheres.
