Seminar Series on Innovations in Corruption Studies: ‘Narratives of evil’

Dr Roxana Bratu will give the last talk in the seminar series ‘Innovations in Corruption Studies in Europe and beyond’, titled ‘Narratives of evil: How do societies construct corruption?’. The series is presented jointly by the UCL ANTICORRP team, the SSEES Centre for European Politics, Security and Integration (CEPSI) and the Slavonic and East European Review (SEER). The series will bring together distinguished speakers from ANTICORPP partner institutions across Europe and prepare for the launch of a SEER special issue on innovations in corruption studies edited by Alena Ledeneva (to be published January 2017).

Roxana Bratu is a postdoctoral research associate at University College London, School of Slavonic and East European Studies. She coordinates the activity of ANTICORRP at UCL. Her research concerns integrity, corruption, transnational aid flows and entrepreneurship in Romania, Ukraine and other former soviet countries.

The seminar will be followed by an informal discussion over coffee/tea and a light sandwich lunch.

All students, staff and visitors are welcome. No registration required.
