We know corruption when we see it.  Or do we?  Professor Ergene will address how the Ottoman state and society defined political and administrative corruption.  The discussion will provide clues about how the Ottomans differentiated legitimate and illegitimate forms of government.  Professor Ergene will also argue that a historical understanding of the topic is crucial to grasp the prevalent attitudes towards corruption in modern Middle East.

  5. I am glad for writing to make you know of the great experience my daughter went through visiting your webblog. She came to understand too many details, most notably how it is like to have a great coaching mindset to make men and women quite simply know just exactly a number of complex subject matter. You really exceeded our own expectations. Thanks for imparting those important, safe, educational as well as fun thoughts on that topic to Sandra.
