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 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.
