Global AC Impacts, Post #5: Implementing Effective Anticorruption Programs in Post-Conflict Countries 

International and bilateral donors have poured large sums of money into post-conflict countries like Afghanistan and Iraq to hasten security, stabilize the peace, rebuild governance, and stimulate economic and social development.

Global AC Impacts, Post #1: Effective Anticorruption Programs Promote More Foreign Investment and Trade

ShipIMGMSI is pleased to share with you some practical research findings we’ve developed on the impacts of anticorruption programs worldwide. Over the next few months, we’ll be sending you links to short technical notes we have written that offer evidence-based insights on how donor support for effective anticorruption initiatives can produce significant results that:

  • – Improve business opportunities for US foreign trade and investment
  • – Reduce state fragility and vulnerability to terrorist activity
  • – Boost the private sector and economic growth
  • – Improve a country’s standard of living and human and social development

Our results are focused on demonstrating what, when and how anticorruption initiatives are effective in advancing such development goals. The first of our technical notes shows how successful anticorruption programs foster increased foreign investment that can benefit US business and trade into the future.
