New Policy Evaluation Tool for Monitoring Anticorruption Enforcement
That it is the enforcement of anticorruption policies which needs to be prioritised is now de rigueur in the anticorruption community. This received wisdom, however, has not been followed up by the development of advanced tools for monitoring this enforcement.
