Harvard Law School’s Law & International Development Society (LIDS) last year launched a new initiative — LIDS Global — to promote international collaboration on research projects related to the role of law in promoting development. The first LIDS Global project focuses on legal responses to corruption, emphasizing in particular legal mechanisms that will promote compensation of corruption’s victims, as well as other forms of remediation. This collaborative effort, which builds on a thoughtful and provocative article authored by several LIDS members last year, features contributions from teams in India, Tanzania, Singapore, and the Philippines. It’s definitely worth a look. The LIDS announcement and description of the project is here; the full text of the LIDS Global Report is here.
