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.
