About the Research Helpdesk

Our Anti-Corruption Helpdesk service meets the professional knowledge and research needs of a 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 tailored answers to corruption-related queries from Transparency International's movement as well as development practitioners. It responds to emerging knowledge needs while mobilising the expertise available across our global network of anti-corruption experts and practitioners.

Questions are answered within ten working days in the form of short briefings, drawing on the expertise of our network of experts and practitioners.

Each answer provides a synthesis of the state of research on a particular topic, lessons learned 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, to tackling corruption in post-conflict situations, to recent trends in anti-bribery laws. 

The Anti-Corruption Helpdesk is supported by the European Commission and Chr. Michelsen Institute.
