The impact of corruption on peace and development – this week’s lunchtime lecture

This week’s lunchtime seminar, on Thursday 6 March 2014, will be given by Thomas Morgan, Research Fellow at the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), on the subject ‘Assessing the impact of corruption on peace and development: A look at the Global Peace Index and the Mexico Peace Index’.

The Institute of Economics and Peace (IEP) is a non-profit think tank conducting research into the relationship between peace, business and prosperity. IEP develops new conceptual frameworks which aim to measure the state of peace, both globally and nationally, and to capture the economic benefits of peace.

The IEP publishes the Global Peace Index (GPI), which is currently the the world’s leading measure of national peacefulness. It has also developed a number of National Peace Indices, including for Mexico and the UK, and the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

OPHI’s lunchtime seminar series is open to all, and provides an opportunity to listen to interesting lectures on issues relating to our research themes. Seminars take place from 12-1pm in Seminar Room 3, Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford, OX1 3TB. A free sandwich lunch is available on a first come, first served basis.

Many of the seminars are made available as audio podcasts afterwards, and can be downloaded from our website along with the presentations given. You can browse previous lectures and view the full listings for the seminar series here.
