Debates about campaign finance laws increasingly center on the question of how to define corruption and influence in politics. The 49th Annual Carlos Kelly McClatchy Symposium, entitled "Corruption: Who Plays? Who Pays?," will focus on the definition and measurement of corruption in politics as seen through the lens of three fields: legal scholarship, journalism, and political science.
Panelists include Zephyr Teachout, Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University and author of Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United; Derek Willis, Correspondent for the The New York Times; and Justin Grimmer, Professor of Political Science at Stanford. The panel will be moderated by James Hamilton, Hearst Professor of Communication at Stanford.
