Call for Submissions: Symposium on Corruption, the Rise of Populism, and the Future of Democracy  

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 
Symposium on Corruption, the Rise of Populism, and the Future of Democracy 
The University of Iowa 
April 1-2, 2022 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: May 15, 2021 

We invite submissions from graduate students who are interested in presenting their research at a two-day symposium on corruption and the rise of populism, organized by the International Programs and the Department of Political Science at the University of Iowa. 

This event will convene a number of senior and early-career scholars from across the United States and Canada in an effort to foster an open dialogue about the challenges that corruption and populism pose to good governance and democracy globally. 

Graduate student invitees will benefit from participating in the panels, networking, and attending a workshop dedicated specifically to the graduate-level study of corruption. It is also our hope that this event will lead to a collaborative publication following the meeting in Iowa. 

Please note that we are specifically looking for submissions that address the following topics in East/South East Asia, East Central Europe, North America, and Latin America. 

  • Corruption and democratic consolidation, stability, and erosion 
  • Corruption, informal networks, and civil society 
  • Corruption, patronage, and electoral processes 
  • Corruption, misinformation, and the spread of extremist ideologies 
  • Corruption, anti-corruptionism, and human rights abuses 

The University of Iowa will cover the transportation and accommodation costs for the graduate students who are selected to participate in the symposium. 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
