UK Courses Focusing On Anti-Corruption
Anna Hazare's anti corruption movement will now be situated by students of Centre for study of Corruption if the Sussex University. The University's School of Law, Politics and sociology has announced the creation of a new research centre at Sussex entitled the 'Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption' which offers a one year master's programme”, from the academic year 2012-13.

“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.
