The Conference on corruption and anti-corruption policies provides a unique forum for academics and policymakers working on corruption and anti-corruption policies to discuss recent research on corruption and anti-corruption policies around the world, anti-corruption experience in advanced economies and emerging markets and implications from research and practical experience for fighting corruption in post-communist countries. 


The Conference will give participants an opportunity to look at the phenomenon of corruption from a scientific angle and find answers to such questions as:


  • why do researchers believe corruption to be a trap and how to escape it;
  • which anti-corruption measures are more effective: systematic and incremental, but slow or rapid and comprehensive;
  • why good intentions of policymakers may cause unexpected side effects in the form of manipulation of data and additional incentives for corrupt activity;
  • why existing corruption perception indexes are not always appropriate and where to find more reliable indicators;
  • how social networks influence politicians and whether they increase their accountability and transparency;
  • how artificial intelligence helps to catch bogus firms and how tax administrations can benefit from it;
  • which countries accumulate close to half of world GDP in tax heavens.


Two days of the Conference will give you an opportunity to learn about and discuss recent research from such world-renowned research institution as:


  • Central European University;
  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development;
  • Free University of Amsterdam;
  • Harvard University;

  • J-PAL;
  • New Economic School;
  • Pompeu Fabra University;
  • Princeton University;
  • Stockholm School of Economics;
  • University of California at Berkeley;
