Political corruption undermines political and economic development in many countries, and raises difficult challenges for foreign aid. What is political corruption? What are the main mechanisms? What can donors do when partner governments are corrupt? These are some of the questions addressed by these focus area pages. The purpose is to extract and present the latest knowledge on issues of political corruption, and we invite advisors in the field of good governance and economics (agency staff and academics) to share opinions, lessons learned and best practice on all aspects of this challenging topic.
