A book discussion moderated by Christian Caryl, Senior Fellow at the Legatum Institute and Editor of Democracy Lab.

Corruption is at the core of today’s biggest challenges. It ingrains poverty, discredits democracies, undermines trust, and ruins economies. Despite huge anti-corruption efforts over the past thirty years, only a handful of societies have reached the point where integrity is the norm. Too many places—both in the developed and developing world—remain systematically corrupt.

In her new Cambridge University Press book, The Quest for Good Governance: How Societies Develop Control of Corruption, Mungiu-Pippidi shows us why only so few succeeded in building control of corruption. Her research ranges from medieval Italy to contemporary Uruguay to illustrate what good governance means in practice and what a sound anti-corruption strategy looks like. She argues that with the right balance of conditions, even the most entrenched corruption cycles can be broken.​

Alina Mungiu-Pippidi has taught Democratisation and Policy Analysis at the Hertie School of Governance since 2007. She studied political science at Harvard University after completing a PhD in Social Psychology in 1995 at the University of Iasi in Romania. She chairs the European Research Centre for Anti-Corruption and State Building Research and is Chair of Policy Pillar of the EU FP7 five-year research project ANTICORRP. She constantly serves as an adviser on issues of governance measurement and anti-corruption to the European Commission, UNDP, Freedom House, NORAD and World Bank, among others.
