Welcome to week 2

We look ahead to learn how and when we would apply different anticorruption strategies in different contexts.

Welcome to the second week of this course! This week we will explore in depth three anticorruption strategies informed by the Power, Capabilities and Interests (PCI) approach to anticorruption:

  • the strategy of “enhancing horizontal checks” and examine this through a case study focusing on climate adaptation projects in Bangladesh
  • the strategy of “creating horizontal checks’ and explore this through a case study focused on health sector worker absenteeism in Nigeria and Bangladesh.
  • the strategy of “mitigation and transformation” and we explore this through a case study focused on artisanal oil refining in the Niger Delta.

We will then go on to explore how taking incremental, feasible and impactful approaches to anticorruption can help developing and emerging countries develop a rule of law.

Finally, we will review and reflect on what we have learned over the two week course and suggest what you can do to further and deepen your learning about anticorruption.
