Combating Corruption



Corruption impacts human rights in a number of ways.

It can be simply transactional – when government officials accept bribes from a corporation to gain access to land, for example.

It can also be institutional – when decision-making in government bodies such as the police, judiciary, or the executive is skewed so that business or political elites can ignore national laws without facing consequences.

Our work explores existing legal frameworks that could help protect human rights and tackle corruption.
