Learn what can be done to address corruption in efforts to rebuild post-conflict states and in fragile situations.
Fragile states’ weak institutions and policies, in combination with high volumes of aid, make them highly vulnerable to corruption. Citizens of these states suffer the consequences of diverted aid flows, while the destabilising effects of corruption can potentially trigger conflict or a return to conflict. Corruption must especially be addressed in these challenging contexts to support statebuilding.
