POL 259 - Special Topic: Governance, Corruption, and Reform

Fall 2019 Special Topic: Governance, Corruption, and Reform

This course explores the relationship between government, corruption, and reform, and under what conditions bureaucracies work either as either facilitators of or impediments to reform. This course provides a mix of classroom instruction with hands-on experiential learning, drawing on the instructor’s work with the Bureaucracy Lab at the World Bank and the Stanford Governance Project. Students will develop a Governance/Policy Lab at Davison, work with an external partner on developing a project, and complete a final research paper based on data from the Governance Project.
