A Conversation with Sarah Chayes on Corruption and Global Security | 03/01/16
Sarah Chayes
What is the common thread linking crises around the world, from Syria to Nigeria? According to Sarah Chayes, the answer is simple: corruption. Since the late 1990s, corruption has reached such an extent that some governments resemble glorified criminal gangs, bent solely on their own enrichment. Chayes spent seven eventful years in Afghanistan, where she grappled with corruption on many levels. Today she is a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. She is the author of "Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security." (Ethics Matter)
