From 29 March to 2 April, I participated in the ECPR Joint Sessions 2016 at the University of Warsaw, Poland. I presented the paper “Replacing the Rascals? Corruption and Candidate Turnover in Central and Eastern Europe” (co-authored with Allan Sikk) as part of the workshop “The intricacies of accountability: horizontal, vertical and diagonal mechanisms to combat corruption”. The session, coordinated by Marcia Grimes, focused on the impact of accountability mechanisms and brought together a number of researchers from the FP7 ANTICORRP project as well as a number of other specialists. A longer summary of the workshop can be read on the official ANTICORRP website.
