The Fourth Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Forum, “Varieties of (anti)corruption:

Learning from the past for the future” aims to bring together international junior researchers

as well as practitioners working in the fields of corruption and anti-corruption. Interactive

session will focus on different manifestations of corruption in respective contexts, and on the

development of anti-corruption policies in a time of international and public pressure for

reform. These discussions will combine theoretical and empirical reflections on the role of

political culture, institutions, existing social movements, international organizations, the role

of political and economic elites, technological development and media for the dynamics and

politics of corruption and the conception(s) of the opposite to corruption.


The Forum will take place on 13 - 15 June 2019, at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla

Academy, Ukraine. Thanks to the funding of the Anti-Corruption Research and Education Centre, International Renaissance Foundation, and Quality of Government Institute in Gothenburg, Sweden, the event is free of charge, including a

joint conference dinner. Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements and



The best papers will be published in a peer-reviewed international, interdisciplinary journal initiated by the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, “Kyiv-Mohyla Law and Politics Journal (KMLPJ)”.


We warmly invite young researchers (PhD, post-doc, advanced Master’s level) from all disciplines, as well as practitioners, to apply before 15 February 2019 on our online platform, here.


Researchers must provide academic abstracts; practitioners are required to state their motivation of participation. You can apply as a non-presenter, but preference will be given to applications with a proposal. The applications will be assessed based on the quality, relevance and originality of the proposal, as well as the regional diversity of participants.


Notifications of acceptance will be sent out on in early March 2019.
