Protocol - The Effectiveness of Anti-Corruption Policy. What has worked, what hasn't, and what we don't know.

Protocol for a systematic review

Abstract

This is the protocol for a systematic review which will review the evidence of the effectiveness of different approaches to reducing corruption. It aims to answer the following questions:

  • What types of policy levers are available to reduce corruption?
  • Which types of policies have been subjected to rigorous evaluation, and what have these evaluations found?
  • Which types of policies have not been subjected to rigorous evaluations, and need further testing?
  • What are the primary criteria that policy-makers should take into account when deciding on a particular policy?

The protocol provides background information and details of the methods to be used.
