In this political age, the term “corruption” is thrown around with increasing frequency. But what is corruption? Aside from the legal conception of “breaking the law,” there is a broader range of insidious behavior and use of political office for self-interested purposes. Join us February 6 from 5:307:00 pm for a discussion with Political Science Professors James D. Long, Susan Whiting, and John Wilkerson regarding the global implications of political corruption from a comparative lens.

James D. Long: "Corrupting Democracy: How to Rig an Election in the 21st Century"  
Susan Whiting: "Dynamics of Corruption during Xi Jinping's Anti-Corruption Campaign: Evidence from the Grassroots"
John Wilkerson: "Careerism, Electoral Dynamics, and the Decline of Representation in the United States" 

Coordinated by Pi Sigma Alpha. The event is free but, given the limited seating capacity, the audience will need to reserve their seats here.
