Policy briefs

What is the 'political settlement', and why does it matter for anti-corruption? These three briefing papers introduce the ACE political settlement analysis of the distribution of power and and influence in Tanzania, Bangladesh and Nigeria, and discuss the implications of these dynamics for anti-corruption efforts.

The briefing papers set out possible future scenarios for evolution of the political settlement in these three countries. They explain why the ACE approach to developing feasible, sector-specific and high impact anti-corruption could be effective to reduce corruption and boost development outcomes.
