CREECA Spring Lecture Series

Political Cycles and Corruption in Russian Regions

Event Details

Thursday, February 1, 2018
4-5:30 p.m.
Please join the CREECA Spring lecture series as Wisconsin Russia Project Postdoctoral Fellow Dmitriy Vorobyev presents his research on corruption and political cycles. Opportunistic incumbent Russian politicians adjust public policies in systematic ways over political cycles. This study shows that corrupt behavior of appointed politicians also follows certain patterns, which are driven by political cycles. This idea is tested using Russian regional data with consistently supportive evidence.
