In 2006, the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) Ministers of Development expressed a desire to move towards more effective collective responses to corruption. ILPI led the technical work, which focused on improving knowledge, tools and training to enable the design of robust collective responses to corruption. Technical advisory support was provided for the development of collective response to corruption in various countries.
This report, which included a study of cases from Afghanistan, Tanzania and Zambia, contributed to expanding the understanding of development partner responses to concrete corruption incidents. The report seeks to explore the factors that influence the extent to which donors are able to act collectively as a joint, credible enforcer of anti-corruption policies in response to concrete cases. As a backdrop to the case studies, a literature review was conducted, with a focus on what drives change with regards to corruption – and whether there is a role for development partners in effectuating or supporting such change. It also looks at what the literature says about the key factors that influence the response of development partners to corruption cases.
