Corruption, Law and Governance (delivered in Qatar)

 

Corruption damages economic development and the health of civil society, nationally and internationally.

This LLM – taught in English and delivered in Qatar, with a particular focus on the problems being encountered in the Arabian Gulf region – gives you a thorough understanding of what corruption is, what causes it, and what does and doesn’t appear to work in trying to tackle it.

You gain an overview of the legislative and regulatory solutions to confront and eradicate the rapidly changing forms of corrupt practices at national and international levels.
