On June 16-18 2017 EAST research fellow Veranika Laputska will attend the symposium IRRESISTIBLE? in Berlin, Germany. It takes a multi-rerspective of corruption, focusing not only on political and economic aspects, but also on social, historical, religious, artistic, philosophical, civic and journalism-related dimensions. The symposium introduces the topic and offers the opportunity to engage with experts from corruption research and the fight against corruption.
How does state corruption operate in different countries and how are (civil) societies responding to this? What is the role of traditional and digital media in the so-called fight against corruption? And what forms of artistic reception, narratives and narrative strategies have arisen as a result? The symposium intends to fill these gaps. This is a cooperation project of the Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) and the Goethe Institute Ukraine, supported by the Federal Foreign Office.
