Fostering disclosure of political finance information regarding public as well as private funds is key to address money's undue influence over democratic processes. However, aid donors are still reluctant to engage in what they see as a country's ‘internal politics'. This case-based brief, based on the experience of the Crinis Project, discusses the issue of transparency in political finance as an attempt to curb money's disruptive role in politics.
