This report looks at where and how the use of a human rights framework might strengthen national and local anti-corruption programmes and at how key human rights principles can be operationalised in anti-corruption work. Having explained the different approaches that the human rights and anti-corruption disciplines respectively take to regulation and core policy issues, it identifies opportunities for synergy and cross-fertilisation. The report seeks to be a practical guide for public officials and other anti-corruption practitioners. It includes cases and policy recommendations and addresses the obstacles and challenges that are likely to arise when anti-corruption programmes integrate human rights.
