School hosts ‘Corruption’ workshop

The Organisation Behaviour Theory and Technology Group of The York Management School hosted a one day workshop sponsored by the Northern Doctoral Training Initiative on the topic of Corruption. The organisers were Lynne Baxter, Carolyn Hunter, Salome Osia. The purpose of the workshop was to help post graduate and early career researchers develop their ideas on theoretical and methodological perspectives corruption, through engagement with international scholars on the topic.
There were four keynote speeches which provoked good discussion in subsequent breakout sessions. Speakers came from the Czech Republic, Sweden and Sussex as well as York. The workshop embraced a range of topics including approaches to studying corruption and perspectives on the subject. For example there were useful discussions on the moral aspects of corruption and corruption in the supply chain. Measuring corruption is a difficult topic, and there were useful contributions on how corruption is perceived.
Since the workshop, a google plus forum has been established and there are plans for future activities, such as a more advanced workshop on methodologies and journal special issue call for papers.
