SITE Academic Conference “Fighting Corruption in Developing and Transition Countries”

The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Association of Swedish Development Economists (ASWEDE) has the pleasure to invite you to the SITE Academic conference “Fighting Corruption in Developing and Transition Countries”.

SITE and the aswede network will host a two-day academic conference from August 31 until 1 September at the Stockholm School of Economics. The intention of this conference is to bring together researchers across all fields of economics contributing to the debate about corruption, its effects, and the optimal tools to fight it. The focus is on low and middle-income countries and the role of legal institutions, with one section in particular focusing on the experience of the transition countries in the CIS and CEE regions.

We are honoured that, this year the conference will be attended by three remarkable keynote speakers:

  • Abhijit Banerjee, Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics at MIT,
  • Kaushik Basu, Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist at the World Bank, 
  • Simeon Djankov, Rector at the New Economic School in Moscow.

We invite you to get acquainted with our keynote speakers and listen to their talks at the conference days.

We are looking forward to seeing you on 31 August and 1 September 2015 and invite you to register for the conference until August 25, 2015 using the Eventbrite registration form below or via email: gun.malmquist@hhs.se, phone: 08-736 96 72.
