The Democracy Lab and Legatum Institute commissioned a series of case studies, in collaboration with Foreign Policy, that examine specific interventions against corruption which have produced positive results. The aim is to tell a set of stories that illustrate how combating corruption works in practice, which may offer insight on some of the larger issues across the globe. The papers formed the basis of a conference in September 2015 that focus on broader themes, such as developing methods to combat corruption, promoting good outcomes, and measuring success. The goal of this project is to identify ideas that do and don’t work and share them with the wider anti-corruption and policy communities.
