Anti-corruption progress in Georgia, Liberia, Rwanda

Abstract

Query

Please summarise what the existing literature has to say about why Georgia, Liberia and Rwanda are perceived to have made more progress than most other low and lower middle income countries on tackling corruption.

Summary

In spite of their apparent diversity, these three countries have benefited from certain common conditions that may have contributed to their success in fighting corruption, including a radical regime change or post conflict context which created a momentum for reform, a strong political will to eliminate corruption; and wide public support and demand for anti-corruption reforms.
