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 Local Governance and State-Citizen Interactions in Informal Areas
Realizing the magnitude of informality as a façon-de-vie in Cairo as in other megacities, this research focuses on the urban poor in their attempts to provide a decent standard of living using their own efforts, within the context of the lack of government engagement and limited resources. The study focuses on the research question of how community organizations and state actors interact in providing key infrastructure in informal areas, taking Izbit ElHaggana in Cairo as an area of study. The objective is to determine the processes of how community self-help schemes install and upgrade, operate, and maintain infrastructure in informal areas. This thus allows us to recognize sustainability issues, as well as potential for integrated/inclusive upgrading policies. As part of a masters’ thesis research, qualitative interviews were conducted with community members, government officials and experts on informality to provide holistic perceptions on the upgrading paradigm.
