Ensuring that our research can influence evidence-based policymaking and have an impact on the wider world.

We advise policy-makers around the world who are grappling with how to curb corruption in their countries and organisations and are seeking evidence-based solutions. We build on the latest theories of anti-corruption but, in line with latest research, recognise the importance of adapting theory to suit the demands and constraints of a particular context.

The Centre is constantly working to improve the evidence base about what works in tackling corruption and seeks to distil key findings into policy briefs, blogs and discussion papers to make them more accessible to practitioners.
