File The impact of corruption on EU financial aid in European Neighbourhood countries
Magdalena Lyubenova won the Transparency International competition for the best anti-corruption thesis at the College of Europe for her study of the impact of corruption on the European Neighbourhood Policy. Despite the widespread belief that financial support fosters economic activity, this analysis finds that the effect is dependent upon corruption levels. The results of this study underline the importаnce of corruption having a direct impact on economic growth аs well аs being a moderаtor of the efficiency of the EU financial assistance provided to the Neighbourhood countries. The paper finds that the European funds have negative impact on the majority of Partnership states, while at the same time lower corruption can contribute to their positive effect.

Research Article Corruption and the private sector
A flurry of high-profile corruption scandals ranging from BAe Systems to Siemens, Halliburton to Samsung highlights the private sector plays a role at the supply side of corruption and faces a broad range of different corruption challenges. Translating this continuous stream of instances into a solid empirical account of the scale and scope of the corruption in the private sector is as difficult as it is essential for guiding policy reforms.

Research Article Gender and Corruption
Gender and corruption is a surprisingly recent issue in anti-corruption scholarship. The first wave of research into the gendered dimensions of corruption focused on whether women are more or less corruptible than men, and whether the promotion of women in public life can be an effective anti-corruption strategy. A second line of enquiry examined the impact of corruption on women as a group, building on the growing evidence that corruption has a disproportionate impact on vulnerable groups in society. Both of these strands of research have already generated a wealth of policy-relevant insights that advance our understanding of the interplay between corruption and gender.

Research Article Corruption and the MDGs
In 2000 more than 180 countries committed to a set of highly visible development priorities to be achieved by 2015. Known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) these eight priorities cover a broad range of critical development issues ranging from poverty reduction, health and education to gender equality, access to clean water and environmental sustainability. By setting numerical targets for related indicators, the MDGs have evolved into a galvanising point for development research to identify the critical conditions and drivers that shape progress, or the lack thereof for specific development goals. This research agenda is more urgent and important than ever. With five years to go to the 2015 target date, progress reports indicate that achievements in many areas are not on-track and the world community is likely to fall short of its commitments.

Research Article The ACRN Research Paper Competition 2010
In August 2010 the Anti-Corruption Research Network (ACRN) held its very first research paper competition for young scholars. We wanted to hear from young corruption researchers from various academic disciplines and regions about their thoughts, innovative approaches, and fresh insights on how the problem of corruption can be best understood and tackled. We received several high quality research papers spanning a wide variety of topics, from corruption issues in procurement or the health sector, to the role of corruption in post-conflict reconstruction, international anti-corruption conventions, and deforestation.
