How the helpdesk works to answer your questions.

Using the helpdesk for the first time?

Ask us anything that

  • Directly relates to corruption and anti-corruption 
  • Concerns relevant practitioner perspectives on policies or operations
  • Is clearly formulated and includes a stated purpose 
  • We can do via desk research in seven working days

We do not answer questions that:

  • Require original fieldwork 
  • Ask for recommendations and direct policy/programming input
  • Demand explicit policy positions on concrete issues
  • Require specialist expertise, eg national laws/technological detail
  • Take more than seven days to complete

Are you unsure about your question? Please contact us at helpdesk@u4.no and we can clarify it together
