WHAT NEW RESEARCH TELLS US ABOUT HOW INFORMAL NETWORKS ENABLE CORRUPTION AND VICE VERSA

On 2 November, the Basel Institute on Governance reported on a 2-year research project, part of the UK Aid-funded Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence Programme (GI-ACE), builds on our previous extensive research project on informal governance across 7 countries.  It says that evidence from this project highlighted that corruption is usually not the result of individual “rotten apples” acting in isolation to abuse their entrusted power for private gain. Rather, corrupt behaviour takes place according to unwritten rules and through informal social networks that connect the public and private sectors.  It is becoming increasingly clear that anti-corruption practitioners need to pay more attention to networks, not only individuals.
