This lecture on the relationship of governance reform and economic growth (and why the former is not a pre-condition for the latter) lasts about 30 minutes, was recorded in late November 2008, and has been broken up into 4 individual video clips.
John Githongo, a senior associate member of St. Antony’s College, Oxford, and vice president of policy and advocacy at World Vision UK, came to international fame when he exposed corruption at the heart of the government in his native Kenya in 2006 – what became known as the Anglo Leasing scandal and forced him to seek temporary refuge in the UK.
In October 2008 he visited SOAS, University of London, to record this lecture on the issue of governance from the perspective of the fight against corruption in Africa.
There are two versions of the lecture available:
an audio lecture of 33 minutes length, and a 6-minute video summary of John Githongo’s main conclusions.
