Fifth Annual Conference of the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies "Corruption in Eastern/Southeastern Europe and Latin America: Comparative Perspectives"
Conference Theme: "Corruption in Eastern/Southeastern Europe and Latin America: Comparative Perspectives" The conference strongly encourages comparative perspectives. In the case of Eastern and Southeastern Europe, historical legacies of the region – such as Ottoman, Czarist, or socialist rule – are believed to be at the root of the corruption issue. But these assumptions cannot be verified without comparison. Latin America, for example, experienced completely different types of government but here too, the past is frequently blamed for the present predicament. Comparisons between these two regions, both semi-peripheries that went through nation building processes at roughly the same time, might help us to come up with better explanations. For this reason, we explicitly invite researchers working on corruption in Latin America to contribute to this conference with either case studies or comparative work.
