About this report

This report resulted from a half-day roundtable discussion that explored ways of applying politically-smart and adaptive methodologies to anti-corruption (AC) programming, and provided an opportunity to strengthen networks and identify ways to share knowledge across existing programmes.

The discussion drew on lessons learned from three DFID-programmes:

  1. Legal Assistance for Economic Reform (LASER);
  2. Strengthening Action Against Corruption (STAAC) in Ghana; and
  3. Strengthening Uganda’s Anti-Corruption Response РTechnical Advisory Facility (SUGAR-TAF), focusing on three overarching questions:
    1. How do we justify adaptation and experimentation in complex anti-corruption programming?
    2. How do we go beyond traditional political economy analysis (PEA) and create a role for research?
    3. How do we work with the political grain, finding pockets of effectiveness where politics and the anti-corruption agenda are aligned?
