Overview of corruption and anti-corruption in Bangladesh

Abstract

Query

Please provide an overview of corruption, and its impact, as well as anti-corruption in Bangladesh. We're particularly interested in service delivery sectors (e.g. health and education), social protection, climate finance and construction.

Summary

Bangladesh has made significant improvements in the fight against corruption in the last decade. However, patronage networks influence Bangladeshi public life and the malfunctioning of democratic institutions, dominated by the opaque ruling parties undermine the country’s efforts to reduce corruption and poverty.
