I am moderating this webinar on June 29, 2021. Join us to learn more. Share this with your friends, as the event is open to all and free!

The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) is proud to partner with its South Asian Section for Public Administration (SASPA) to present a BookTalkCorruption in the Public Sector: An International Perspective.

Taking place this Tuesday, June 29 at 10:00 a.m. ET, and free to attend, book editor Krishna Tummala will discuss this resource alongside other experts in the field.

Providing a broad overview on public sector corruption, including local and national perspectives, Corruption in the Public Sector examines case studies from across the globe, from Hong Kong to India, from South Africa to Brazil. The contributions also cover themes that are not studied often, including corruption in government procurement, the nascent issue of the “right to privacy” stemming from e-governance and the proclivity of governments to hide behind Official Secrets Acts to withhold information—ostensibly guaranteed under the “right to information,” which is vital in the fight against corruption.

Presenters will discuss insights from research and praxis and help attendees understand the phenomenon of corruption and how it manifests itself in various ways in the public sector across the regions.
