Corruption can siphon desperately needed resources away from development, but as some anti-corruption advocates have found, taking on vested interests can come at a great personal risk to their livelihoods—or even their lives. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s new book, Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous: The Story Behind the Headlines, draws on her years as Nigeria’s Finance Minister to provide practical lessons on the difficult, sometimes-dangerous, always-necessary work of fighting graft and corruption.
Join the Center for Global Development and the Brookings Institution for the launch of Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous: The Story Behind the Headlines. Masood Ahmed and Homi Kharas will join Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to discuss her new book and what it means for the fight against corruption.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala will sign books after the event.
