At home and abroad, America faces the issue of corruption in the institutions upon which we have come to rely. Join us for the inaugural event of the Democracy Initiative’s Corruption Laboratory for Ethics, Accountability, and the Rule of Law (CLEAR). The event will feature William Browder, a businessman who has been declared a threat to Russian national security.
Corruption is broadly recognized as a scourge that undermines democratic accountability, economic prosperity, and adherence to the rule of law. It is a fundamental impediment to good governance that holds global implications for development and citizen security. UVA-CLEAR’s inaugural event will expose students, faculty, and community members to an exchange of ideas about how corruption has eroded citizen wellbeing around the world and what can be done to stop it.
