Governance and Faith
January 12, 2009
A first Berkley Center effort focuses on the ongoing work to fight corruption and ways in which faith communities might play more active and effective roles in the large and complex civil society integrity alliances that are taking shape. A meeting at the Berkley Center on October 14, 2004 explored the topic. Katherine Marshall chaired a workshop at the Athens International Anti-Corruption Conference on October 30-November 2, 2008 which explored avenues for raising interest and enhancing action of faith communities on corruption issues. A report on faith and governance reviews ongoing work and issues and proposes ten areas where future action to enhance faith engagement in fighting corruption.
In this work the Berkley Center has close links with several partners including Transparency International, the International Anti-Corruption Conference, the World Bank, IDEA (International Development Ethics Association), Global Ethics, and the University of Cambodia. Berkley Center work on faith, governance, and anti-corruption is an ongoing effort, with the expectation of continuing consultations on understandings of the issues, a mapping survey of what is being done, where, and with what effect, assessment of experience, and dialogue on thorny issues. This work will be reflected in periodic updates on the website.
