Combatting Corruption with Mobile Phones

India’s right to information movement demonstrated the potential to combat corruption through social audits – an exercise to share and verify public records with people.  But this process requires a lot of time, skill and organizational effort – thanks to which very few audits are organized in India despite its potential.  Srinivasan and his team hopes to change this by creating digital tools for activists, which they can use to organize social audits continuously at low cost, and thus challenge corruption in a sustained manner.  He will share the progress of the project so far in this talk.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
