The Anti-Corruption Interest Group of the American Society of International Law, co-chaired by myself and Phil Nichols of the Wharton School, is soliciting papers for its first conference/workshop. We invite thoughtful papers from academics and practitioners alike.
The event is to be held at the University of Pennsylvania on October 2-3, 2015.
Interested persons should submit a one page proposal to Ms. Lauretta Tomasco at [email protected] by August 7, 2015.
If accepted, a proposer must supply a five page (or longer, if you prefer) paper by September 25, 2015. Copies of all papers will be distributed to all participants before the workshop; an objective of this meeting is to thoroughly discuss the ideas contained in each paper. The precise format of the conference/workshop will depend on the number of submissions received.
Any submissions that relate to corruption are encouraged. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
The nature, manifestations and forms of corruption
Effects of corruption on business, economies, governments, or society
Domestic control of corruption
Comparative analysis of domestic corruption laws
Corporate liability for corruption
Codes of conduct to control corruption

This list is only suggestive: any submission related to corruption is welcome.
