Corruption damages economic development and the health of civil society, nationally and internationally.
This LLM – delivered in Qatar, with a particular focus on the problems being encountered in the Arabian Gulf region – gives you a thorough understanding of what corruption is, what causes it, and what does and doesn’t appear to work in trying to tackle it.
You gain an overview of the legislative and regulatory solutions to confront and eradicate the rapidly changing forms of corrupt practices at national and international levels.

Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre
This course is taught by Sussex faculty at the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) in Doha, Qatar. ROLACC is a not-for-profit organisation, established in 2013 by the Emir of Qatar.
The Centre aims to build knowledge and raise individual and institutional competencies that promote the rule of law and fight corruption in line with international standards.
It plans to create a permanent framework for the exchange of experiences and expertise through the establishment of strategic partnerships with offices and agencies of the United Nations – particularly the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime – as well as the most prominent studies and research centres in the world.
This course prepares you to take leading roles in supporting anti-corruption strategies in government, non-government and commerical organisations, and in a variety of domestic, regional and international anti-corruption agencies.
