WHAT: Workshop on Global Policy: Who is Corrupt in China?

In many reports China is now ranked one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Who in China is corrupt and to what extent? In this quantitative study Professor Wang finds that age, gender, level of education, location and sector of work, rank in governmental hierarchy, etc., are all factors determining the likelihood and degree of corruption. The broad spectrum of determinants have a common link, however: Greater unchecked power and control of resources lead to increased likelihood and more severe corruption.
