Upcoming Event: ASPA BookTalk Webinar

corruptionJoin your MPPA community on June 29th, 7 – 8 a.m. PST, by registering for the next BookTalk panel webinar on Corruption in the Public Sector: An International Perspective, the highly relevant book by Dr. Krishna Tummala. As a preview, ASPA reports that the panel’s participants will be:

Providing a broad overview on public sector corruption, including local and national perspectives, this edited collection examines case studies from across the globe, from Hong Kong to India, from South Africa to Brazil. The contributions also cover themes that are not studied often, including corruption in government procurement, the nascent issue of the “right to privacy” stemming from e-governance and the proclivity of governments to hide behind Official Secrets Acts to withhold information—ostensibly guaranteed under the “right to information,” which is vital in the fight against corruption. Presenters will discuss insights from research and praxis, and help attendees understand the phenomenon of corruption and how it manifests itself in various ways in the public sector across the regions. 

One of the panel presenters will be our own Program Director and Professor, Sabith Khan, the new Chair of ASPA’s South Asia Section! Others include Amanda M. Olejarski of West Chester University and the Public Integrity journal, Meghna Sabharwal from University of Texas at Dallas, Krishna K. Tummala of Kansas State University, and Pardhasaradhi Yarlagadda from Osmania University in India. We hope you can make it!
