Title Does innovative enforcement help or hurt anti-corruption efforts? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet FCPA Blog: News and commentary about white-collar crime, enforcement, and compliance Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 18/09/19 Description At Global Integrity, we’re taking a close look at huge corruption scandals in three countries and the law enforcement practices used against the high-level graft. We want to know whether innovation diminishes the effectiveness of anti-corruption efforts in the three countries — or instead is helping redefine the local definition of effectiveness.
The scandals we’re studying — in Nigeria, Malawi, and Tanzania — are shocking in scope and scale and have strained the capacity and tested the integrity of anti-corruption agencies. The scandals also have exposed gaps in conventional narratives surrounding these countries’ corruption investigations and prosecutions that paint them as anemic, hamfisted, and easily politicized.
Our initial research findings from all three countries suggest that law enforcement practices targeting high-level corruption are more nuanced and complex than previous studies suggest.
