ANTICORRP Report cited in “The Economist”

The Quantitative Report: Why do some societies manage to establish control of corruption and others not?  elaborated in the framework of the ANTICORRP project, implemented by SAR and Hertie School of Governance has been cited in an article entitled “Ukraine’s economy, War-torn reform”. The article addresses the topic of corruption in Ukraine, pointing out that the country’s government is making some progress, but much more needs to be done.

The report is mentioned in connection to one of its main conclusions that “dedicated anti-corruption institutions typically fail. That is usually because the bureau itself ends up becoming a target for corruption and political influence.”

The report addresses the question: why do some societies manage to establish control of corruption and others not? Control of corruption is defined in this report as the capacity of a society to constrain individual corrupt behavior in order to enforce the norm of individual integrity in public service and politics as well as to uphold a state that is free from capture by particular interest.

ANTICORRP – Global Trends and European Responses to the Challenge of Corruption is a large scale research project financed through the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme.
