You are invited to join our August 26 Webinar: “A 40 year view of institutional corruption in Central Asia and in US and International Assistance There” with Nancy Lubin, President, JNA Associates, Inc, a research and consulting firm on the former USSR, especially the Caucasus and Central Asia.
This talk will explore the challenges of US and international aid in addressing corruption — and deep-seated ‘institutional corruption’ – in all sectors in formerly Soviet Central Asia and within the US, European and international assistance communities themselves. Drawing from Lubin’s four decades of research, consulting and personal experience in this region, we will discuss the nature of ‘corruption’ in this part of the world; why some aid programs succeed; and why far too many assistance efforts have only exacerbated the very corruption they are committed to address and undermined their own objectives — not only because of the difficulties of working in this part of the world, but because of institutional factors that pervade the foreign assistance community itself.
