Our Q&A service meets the professional knowledge and research needs of a wide variety of stakeholders, from bilateral and multilateral donors to anti-corruption practitioners. Drawing on our long-standing experience of operating the U4 Helpdesk, this service provides timely and tailor-made answers to corruption-related queries from Transparency International's chapters as well as development practitioners. It responds to emerging knowledge needs while mobilising the expertise available across our global network of anti-corruption practitioners.
Questions are answered within ten working days in the form of corruption briefs, drawing on the expertise of a Network of Experts as well as our own practitioners’ network. Each answer provides a synthesis of the state of research on a specific topic, lessons learnt from case studies as well as practical recommendations for anti-corruption approaches.
Topics cover a wide range of corruption-related issues, from the effectiveness of anti-corruption agencies, how to tackle corruption in post-conflict situations, to recent trends in anti-bribery laws.
