“The effectiveness of Anna Hazare's high-profile campaign to clean up Indian life is subsequently something that is analysed within the MA programme,” the Centre's head Dr.Dan Hough told PTI.
Hough, in an email interview said “Sussex University is listed in the top 100 in the world and has a long history of analysing politics, economics and culture in the non-western world. The Centre fits squarely within this tradition”.
“Campaigns such as Hazare's are put very much under the academic microscope”, said Hough, who also runs a module on anti-curruption approaches. The centre was founded last year to analyse what corruption is, where it thrives and, most importantly, what can be done about it, he said. It will help understand why so many anti-corruption efforts have failed so miserably.
