This interactive workshop addresses bribery & anti-corruption within international business. IDays participants are encouraged to come and watch this class-led workshop, in which students will work through four corruption scenarios.

With World Bank estimates citing the global cost of corruption at over $2.6 trillion per year, a diverse range of transnational stakeholders are increasingly involved in efforts to end the practice. High profile anti-corruption crackdowns such as the recent US led indictments against FIFA officials and China’s Operation Fox Hunt are but two examples of how law enforcement agencies are targeting corrupt officials.  Yet even with threats of public shaming, financial penalty and prison, corruption remains a serious global challenge with many communities seeing it as an endemic problem that undermines public trust in government and industry.  

Given these challenges, university educators have an opportunity to fill a gap in anti-corruption practice by incorporating experiential learning activities in the classroom that focus on ethics and integrity training.  In building a case for experiential learning, this workshop introduces four role-play simulations that have been used to teach business and social science students the complex nature of corruption in Asia.  Each role-play is based on factual experiences encountered by the author over the course of five years of research in the region.   

Role-plays involve multidisciplinary challenges that empower the learner to consider themes such as human rights, culture, legal sanction, personal safety, supply chain management, as well as economic risk.  Role-plays are entirely student led and require peer-review at the end of each activity where students must reflect on concepts such as due diligence, code of conduct, rule of law, corporate social responsibility, environmental sustainability and economic growth.  The purpose is to teach students how to apply critical thinking skills and ethics training when forced to confront corrupt behaviour. 

Seating is limited and on a first come first served basis. (Approx. 80 seats available)
