About the Anti-Corruption Research Network
What’s at stake?
Around the globe, corruption researchers from a range of fields need better access to cutting edge information coming from both academia and from practical experience. Likewise, within the Transparency International movement there are often instances where our chapters and activists are working on an anti-corruption project, and need vital background research done to explore key issues more in-depth.
What we’re doing about it
Campus for Transparency
The ACRN also coordinates the Campus for Transparency, which seeks to harness the research, expertise and creativity found in leading universities around the world. It links the various knowledge needs of Transparency International chapters with universities seeking to give their students experience of real-world consultancy projects. These collaborations help professionalise the anti-corruption movement by connecting national chapters with academics, providing additional research resources to Transparency International and introducing the next generation of policy-makers, scholars and practitioners to anti-corruption work.
- Transparency International national chapters and our secretariat
- Academic partners such as universities and research institutes
- Student groups
The Anti-Corruption Research Network offers an online platform and quarterly research newsletter for anti-corruption researchers to present their latest findings and exchange ideas and information with peers and practitioners. It also provides an efficient entry point into the academic anti-corruption knowledge base for policy-makers and in-country experts.
The Anti-Corruption Research Network aims to stimulate and foster new, innovative research to address knowledge gaps and emerging issues in the field of anti-corruption. In particular, it promotes the engagement of young researchers working on governance and anti-corruption.
With our matchmaking service we aim to build a relationship with key partner universities providing their students with the opportunity to develop their skills and learn about Transparency International’s work while also supporting our national chapters with the benefit of innovative student research.
