NARTI Workshop on Corruption, 26-27 May 2015.

News | Posted on Monday 16 March 2015

The workshop will advance the thinking of PhD students and Early Career Researchers in Management, but should also be of interest to those in other Social Sciences, Humanities and Technology Studies disciplines.

The York Management School is hosting a two-day workshop on the topic of Corruption.

Corruption is defined by Transparency International as ‘the abuse of entrusted power for private gain’, and has been described as an ‘evil’ that management needs to eradicate from organizations.  A second, more critical, perspective is that corrupt practices are integral to organizing and constructive for many. Corruption can take many different forms and is a global phenomenon, and is a very difficult subject to study.

The event will bring together speakers from across Europe to facilitate debate and exchange on topics such as methods for researching corruption, perceptions of corruption, corruption as transgression, degeneration, and jouissance, and perceptions on indices.  It will also provide time and space for PhD and ECR researchers to discuss their own work and engage with these ideas.
