This is part one of a six-part issue paper examining tools for assessment of corruption risks in criminal investigation, prosecution, trials, and detention. The issue paper is meant to help developing countries identify and prevent corruption in the investigation, arrest, pretrial detention, prosecution, trial, and incarceration of those suspected of violating criminal law. It provides policymakers in developing nations, their citizens, and U4’s partners in the donor community with an overview of where corruption is most likely to arise in each stage of the criminal justice process and the tools available to measure corruption along the criminal justice chain.
