Event description

Description

Launch: Democracy Initiative’s Corruption Laboratory for Ethics, Accountability, and the Rule of Law (CLEAR).

At home and abroad, America faces the issue of corruption in the institutions upon which we have come to rely. Join us for the inaugural event of the Democracy Initiative’s Corruption Laboratory for Ethics, Accountability, and the Rule of Law (CLEAR). The event will feature William Browder, a businessman who has been declared a threat to Russian national security, and lunch will be provided.

Corruption is broadly recognized as a scourge that undermines democratic accountability, economic prosperity, and adherence to the rule of law. It is a fundamental impediment to good governance that holds global implications for development and citizen security. UVA-CLEAR’s inaugural event will expose students, faculty, and community members to an exchange of ideas about how corruption has eroded citizen wellbeing around the world and what can be done to stop it.

We invite you to participate in these three important sessions.

The Miller Center offers ample parking. For those on Grounds, there will be shuttle buses from the UVA Chapel to the Miller Center beginning at 9 a.m.
