In a recent episode of the Securityscape podcast, CJL’s Co-Directors, Cheyanne Scharbatke-Church and Diana Chigas, discuss the links between corruption and conflict.
Cheyanne Scharbatke-Church and Diana Chigas appeared in a recent episode of the Securityscape podcast, hosted by the Centre for Military, Security and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary.
In this episode, our Co-Directors discuss how corruption and conflict reinforce each other, creating a vicious cycle that is difficult to break.

Anti-corruption cannot be an afterthought in such situations and instead must be an ongoing effort employed in tandem with conflict resolution.
