THE CORRUPTION, JUSTICE & LEGITIMACY PROGRAM
Corruption, Justice and Legitimacy (CJL) is a research-to-practice initiative committed to improving the effectiveness of anti-corruption programming in contexts of endemic corruption. We engage with practitioners, policymakers and academics across sectors and regions with the goal of unlocking the barriers to effective and durable development caused by corrupt patterns of behavior.
The Social Norms and Corruption Project aims to shift social norms from the periphery to a central component of corruption analysis and anti-corruption strategy.
AS A SYSTEM
The Corruption as a System Project offers technical assistance to implementers and donors as they integrate corruption analysis into their program development or evaluation process.
The Corruption and Peacebuilding project seeks to incorporate anti-corruption into peacebuilding programs and vice versa, ultimately leveraging these approaches for greater effectiveness.
OUR LATEST PUBLICATION
This paper identifies the prominent debates in the literature on how to adapt anti-corruption strategies for fragile and conflict-affected settings (FCAS). Across the international development community, there is growing attention to the interconnected relationships between conflict and corruption, in addition to the well-documented ways in which systemic corruption inhibits sustainable development. However, there is little consensus among scholar and practitioner communities alike on how to adapt anti-corruption strategies for FCAS. Effective and conflict-sensitive anti-corruption strategies become exponentially more challenging in settings with low institutional capacity, unstable political settlements, and ongoing conflict or conflict-related social tensions. In addition to capturing the most salient ongoing discussions on how to support successful and appropriate anti-corruption strategies in FCAS, this paper identifies significant gaps in the evidence base
