This guide provides a step by step guide to analysing corruption problems and developing realistic and effective anti-corruption strategies in contexts where the rule of law is weak.

It is aimed at policy-makers and practitioners looking to find solutions to deeply entrenched, often seemingly intractable corruption challenges.

The approach outlined here is based on research between 2016 and 2022 by the Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) Research Consortium led by SOAS University of London.
