Spotlight on Corruption

The international Anti-Corruption Summit that took place in London on 12 May 2016 sought to galvanize a global response to tackling corruption. Corruption stymies development, exacerbates conflict, and undermines conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts worldwide.

Combatting corruption has been an important aspect of The Hague Institute’s work since 2013. Our research projects, publications and events have examined the causes and consequences of corruption globally and proposed measures to combat this pernicious phenomenon. This spotlight page provides an overview of our work to combat corruption through fostering a rule of law culture, enforcing international anti-corruption laws and standards, and strengthening local, regional and international institutions.
