The workshop offers a venue for the discussion of the political dimension of corruption. While corruption is generally recognized as wrong, few studies have been entirely devoted to the analysis of the kind of wrong that this form of corruption implies. What is more, the small number of studies that have engaged with this question have done so mainly from an economic or sociological perspective, thus leaving the political dimension of the wrongfulness of corruption largely underexplored. The workshop aims to make a start at filling this lacuna.
