Research stream 1

The first research stream is on global anti-corruption laws, institutions, indicators, and discourses. The goal of this research stream is to explore the politics, power relations, indicators, and discourses that underlie the global anti-corruption industry and examine their impact on legal and institutional developments and governance practices in given socio-legal contexts (e.g., Central Asia) that are characterised by authoritarian regimes, weak rule-of-law, dysfunctional institutions and rampant corruption.

Researchers under this research stream:

Dilaver Khamzaev (The Law Enforcement Academy of the Republic of Uzbekistan)

Aine Ramonaite (Vilnius University, Lithuania)

Daniya Nurmukhankyzy (Zhetysu University, Kazakhstan)

Zarrina Kadyrova (Tajik State University of Commerce)
