Corruption & Political Misconduct (CPM) provides an interdisciplinary platform to exchange ideas relating to the teaching and research of corruption and related issues (such as electoral fraud, organised crime, governance and political ethics).

The group organises an annual conference, and supports sections and panels at the annual PSA Conference and other international conferences.


The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
