Anti-Corruption and Transparency
Corruption is among the greatest obstacles to economic and social development.
Corruption is among the greatest obstacles to economic and social development. The harmful effects of corruption are especially severe on the poor. Palladium supports governments, the private sector and non-state actors to develop the systems and skills to address corruption and foster transparency. We apply evidence-driven approaches, such as applied political economy analysis and institutional systems reviews, to measure and diagnose governance issues and drivers of corruption that most constrains the private sector and service delivery. The tactics we utilize address the five key elements of an effective anti-corruption strategy:
1. Increasing political accountability
2. Strengthening civil society participation
3. Creating private sector engagement
4. Implementing effective institutional restraints on power
5. Improving public sector management
