Studies of corruption and gender in politics worldwide give differing results:
Last month, the Quality of Governance Institute at University of Gothenburg, Sweden, organised an international workshop on gender and corruption. The purpose of the workshop was to unfold the confounding relationship that exists between gender and corruption. Speaking broadly, the workshop sought to address four questions: What is the meaning of corruption when it comes to the issue of gender?; what exact relationship exists between gender and corruption?; what do research results tell us about the relationship?; and what are the real world implications of such results?
