New Podcast Episode, Featuring Grant Walton

A new episode of KickBack: The Global Anticorruption Podcast is now available. In latest episode, host Dan Hough interviews Grant Walton, Associate Professor at the Australia National University’s Crawford School of Public Policy. Their conversation focuses on corruption in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Professor Walton discusses his research on differences in how people in PNG understand the meaning of “corruption”  and how this understanding may differ from common Western understandings of the term. He also emphasizes his view that inattention to this disconnect has implications for how campaigners and reformers design anticorruption messaging. Professor Walton also discusses how PNG’s formal anticorruption institution and how external actors can effectively support those institutions. You can also find both this episode and an archive of prior episodes at the following locations: KickBack was originally founded as a collaborative effort between GAB and the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN). It is now hosted and managed by the University of Sussex’s Centre for the Study of Corruption. If you like it, please subscribe/follow, and tell all your friends!
