The forthcoming Africa Governance Report IV titled Measuring corruption in Africa: the international dimension mattersraise the problem of credibility and reliability with existing predominantly perception-based measures of corruption. Their results focus on country ranking or naming and shaming, but offer minimal policy insights and practical recommendations to inform policy reforms.
Alternative non-perception-based methods of measuring corruption, however, remain inadequately developed and also ignore the international dimension corrupt acts and practices, which is a key factor to understanding this phenomenon in Africa.
The AGR IV calls on African countries and partners to avoid perception-based measures of corruption and adopt approaches that are fact-based, objective and quantitative in criteria, aimed at building robust economic governance institutions for sustainable development and structural transformation.
The event is open to all delegates, Time: 9:00-11:00; 2nd April 2016; Venue: CR6.
