This course explores key U.S. constitutional provisions, laws, regulations and institutions – as well as voluntary norms and practices -- intended to foster transparency and integrity and to prevent and sanction corruption in the public sector. It will analyze U.S. criminal laws, including on bribery and money laundering; preventive measures to promote transparency and accountability, such as ethics standards, access to information and whistleblower protection; the role of the courts; and, relatively problematic areas, such as conflicts of interest and political finance.
