Anti-Corruption Measurement and Monitoring

Introduction

Corruption measurement/assessment and anti-corruption monitoring and evaluation are crucial ingredients to increase our knowledge on what works and what doesn’t in the fight against corruption. To be effective anti-corruption programmes must be based on a sound foundation of corruption risk assessments or measurement of the extent that corruption has permeated the public and private institutions.

However, the issue of corruption measurement and anti-corruption monitoring and evaluation requires looking at different tools, techniques, and methods depending on what is going to be measured. There is no single formula or one-fits-all approach that will unravel the complexity of these issues. In this page, users will find different tools, methods and practices developed by different organizations and countries.
