This conference aims to examine a variety of methods across jurisdictions and disciplines for advancing formal anti-corruption laws and norms that would impact, advance and entrench the formation of informal anti-corruption norms and values – all contributing to better governance.

The global fight against large-scale corruption has generated widespread attention and action from governments, NGOs, businesses and academics. But is all this discussion and action accomplishing any reduction in corruption, or is it little more than new laws and policies with no teeth, no resources for enforcement and no will to implement from political and business elites?
