PPOL-687 CORRUPTION, CRIMINALITY AND MONEY POLITICS IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE
Professor Milan Vaishnav
This seminar course surveys the literature on the role money, criminality and corrupt exchanges play in the political economy of development. The goal of the course is to provide students with a framework for investigating and understanding the modes of "quid pro quo" politics that often take place behind closed doors. The course will begin by focusing on the theoretical debates in the literature. We will then turn to empirical analysis and case study evidence to explore how corruption, criminality and money politics operate in developed and developing country settings such as Brazil, India, Italy, and the US.
