     ANTI-CORRUPTION EXPERTISE     

Based on extensive field experience managing international efforts in Kosovo and U.S. programs in Afghanistan, we provide expertise in the development of a comprehensive accountability regime. Our specialties include complaint mechanisms and whistle-blower protections, corporate governance, civil society oversight, E-governance, and leveraging technology for transparent privatization processes. 

     TOOLKIT     

Our research demonstrates criminalized power structures are the leading spoilers of peace and stability operations. Our Experts can advise on:
  • Proper assessment of the risks to stabilization, good governance, and long-term development presented by criminalized and corrupt networks and identification of the type of threat they pose.
  •  Strategic planning designed to tailor the response to the nature of the threat and to exploit their critical vulnerabilities.
  • Tabletop exercises to support the policy community in anticipating the challenges posed by criminalized power structures prior to intervention and designing an appropriate policy response.
  • Anti-corruption programming based on extensive field experience managing U.S. and international efforts in Kosovo and Afghanistan to develop a comprehensive accountability regime.
  • Leveraging technology to foster transparency and reduce corruption through digitization, analytics, and open data systems using commercial off the shelf solutions.
