Speaking to Mark Leon Goldberg of Global Dispatches, Carnegie’s Sarah Chayes talked about about her scholarship, career, and life experiences. She explained that corruption, driven by kleptocratic networks which wheld private, public, and rising criminal sector actors, is driving violence and insurgency worldwide. Ultimately, she concluded, confronting corruption at a deep level demands a significant cultural shift away from money and income as a primary virtue, and an intellectual movement away from treating corruption as a victimless crime.
