The European Institute for Socioeconomics will host an inter-disciplinary conference on corruption and good governance. The conference will take place on September 11-12, 2020 at the European Academy of Otzenhausen.
We already have been able to attract three proven and well-known experts in the research field as keynote speakers:
- Wladimir Andreff, sports economist will give a presentation on „Corruption of sport governing bodies: toward new recruitment selection and remuneration procedures?“
- Declan Hill, journalist and criminologist will talk about „Corrupting Sports Integrity Research: the battle for independent, empirical data”.
- Tanja Rabl is psychologist and economist. Her talk will address „The Psychology of Corruption“.

Contributions to the parallel sessions of the conference, we would appreciate presentations dealing with theoretical and empirical research on corruption and good governance in the state as well as in the private and social sectors, particularly in sports.
Among others, the following topics are of special interest:
- Corruption in history – historical cases of corruption
- Good Governance and corruption in institutions of various kind, e.g. commercial entities, governmental organizations, politics, scientific community, religious sphere sports and leisure clubs etc.
- Determinants of corruption – promoting and impeding factors regarding organization type, organizational structure etc.
- Consequences and impact of corruption with regard to the organization, its stakeholder and the society at large (i.a. concept of democracy, social and political trust, etc.).
The two-hour English-language sessions will include three lectures of 20 minutes each, thus allowing sufficient time for discussion. In addition, we would like to ask all speakers to upload an extended and detailed abstract (2-3 pages) to our conference website prior to the conference. This will allow participants to prepare for the discussions and register for short replies to the presentations.
Please submit your proposals (ca. 500 words) by July, 15 2020. Please send an e-mail to this effect to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The scientific committee will decide on the acceptance of the contributions. The decision will be made by 31 July and will be announced immediately afterwards. We look forward to your contributions!
Following the conference, the EIS plans to publish an anthology in which selected contributions, that have successfully passed a regular peer-review procedure, will be published.

- when arriving on Sept., 10th and departure on Sept., 12th: € 160.00

EIS 2020: Good governance versus Corruption - Interdisciplinary Discussions
The current situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic does not stop at our planned conference in autumn. At the current time, we cannot yet estimate exactly what the official requirements will be in September, for example with regard to distance regulations, group sizes or accommodation options. This could have an impact on the conference and we are developing strategies for this in advance. The following form is therefore not to be understood as a binding registration, but as an expression of interest. We are pleased about the lively interest and will come to the interested persons with more detailed information in the course of the preparations.
