Cover WinelandsPapers 2012This work presents the peer-reviewed and updated conference papers presented at the 13th Winelands Conference of the School for Public Leadership of the University of Stellenbosch. The conference was co-hosted by the Zijlstra Center (VU university Amsterdam) and focused on the issues of corruption, combating and preventing it and the future of good governance, especially in Southern Africa and (Western) Europe.

The publication is the result of an international orientation on the themes of good governance and corruption, now and in the coming years. While good and bad are opposites, the same goes for good governance and corruption. They do not go together in one organization and good governance  is the means to remedy  the other. Corruption hollows out and destroys all forms of good governance at all levels of government. The only sustainable weapon against corruption is in the establishment of good governance and complementary management control within organizations.

Many Zijlstra scholars were involved in the creation of the publication. Goos Minderman as editor and Berit Lindemann, Kim van Eijck, Arno Geurtsen, Ans Verstraeten and Hans Bossert as authors.

The Winelands conference, with its public leadership and governance focus, is held every second year in Stellenbosch. The next conference will be held from 31 march – 4 april 2014 and focuses on the theme ‘Innovation for the Urban Age’. More information
