U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre

This Anti-Corruption Helpdesk brief was produced in response to a query from a U4 Partner Agency. The U4 Helpdesk is operated by Transparency International in collaboration with the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre based at the Chr. Michelsen Institute.


Can you provide us with a list of key resources on mainstreaming anti-corruption into global programmes that are implemented by multilaterals?


This will help us scope the issue.


1.       Overview

2.       Internal integrity management systems at multilaterals

3.       Incorporating anti-corruption safeguards into programmes to protect funds


This answer provides a list of literature on anti-corruption mainstreaming at multilaterals. Overall, it can be said that while there is growing awareness among multilateral donors about the potential benefits of mainstreaming anti-corruption, efforts nonetheless face political, institutional and operational challenges.

The literature is grouped into the two main components of anti-corruption mainstreaming as it is understood for the purpose of this query: internal integrity management systems and incorporating anti-corruption safeguards into programmes to protect funds.
