This course explores the concepts of governance and corruption. It deals with the shift from government towards governance and what this means for the accountability of politics and administration and how key values for democratic governance are understood: public and private interest, and corruption. Moreover, the course uses the policy area of anticorruption and public integrity to study implications of the shift from government to governance.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
