SOAS-ACE: Feasible anti-corruption strategies – a new approach

The SOAS-ACE research framework advocates an alternative, bottom-up and sector-specific approach that aims to engage powerful organisations to support anti-corruption strategies with developmental impact for their own benefit. This approach can be tested across different sectors and can appeal to all academics, development specialists and policy makers interested in implementing anti-corruption strategies in adverse contexts as well as deepening our understanding of effective policy design for anti-corruption policies in a wide range of economic and political contexts. Professor Mushtaq Khan presents his innovative anti-corruption approach using newly generated research evidence that tackles corruption in developing countries.
