8 Ways Anti-Corruption Programs Can Inadvertently Fuel Conflict

Social Norms and Corruption

By Lara Olson with Diana Chigas


This Working Paper is part of the Corruption, Justice and Legitimacy (CJL) Program’s learning initiative “Conflict Sensitivity in Anti-Corruption,” a research-to-practice effort to identify ways to support anti-corruption efforts to succeed in conflict-affected environments without exacerbating conflict. Working Papers are CJL’s way of sharing initial findings that are substantial and worthy of review, but still open to evolution and improvement through scrutiny from the community of practice.

CJL welcomes your critique, questions and input at We are gathering feedback to validate, challenge or clarify the ideas presented in this Working Paper. Please let us know what you think.
