Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics


Please join us for a two-day conference to celebrate the end of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics's lab on institutional corruption.

In 2010, Lawrence Lessig launched the Edmond J. Safra Research Lab, a major initiative designed to address fundamental problems of ethics in a way that is of practical benefit to institutions of government and society around the world. Over the last five years, hundreds of fellows have tackled the issue of institutional corruption.

"Institutional corruption is manifest when there is a systemic and strategic influence which is legal, or even currently ethical, that undermines the institution's effectiveness by diveriting it from its purpose or weakening its ability to achieve its purpose, including, to the extent relevant to its purpose, weakening either the public's trust in that institution or the institution's inherent trustworthiness."

- Lawrence Lessig, "Institutional Corruption, Defined"

We invite you to join us for a conference to celebrate the culmination of this project and the enormous success of our faculty, fellows, and affiliates .

Learn more about the Lab's work in Government and Law, Medicine and Public Health, Business and Organizational Psychology, Finance and Economics, and Academia and Nonprofits.
