Description: Now that the links between corruption and violent conflict, authoritarianism, poverty, inequality and human rights abuses are clear, the key issue is how to curb it. What options exist beyond traditional approaches? What strategic value do citizens bring to the anticorruption struggle? How do bottom-up campaigns and movements complement and reinforce top-down anticorruption efforts? In this session we’ll consider these questions, explore how people power impacts corruption and impunity, analyze a few of the creative tactics carried out by millions of citizens around the world, and apply what we’ve learned in an interactive, group format.
