This study is part of a series of assessments undertaken in 20 African countries, clustered and compiled in three regions: the East African Community, Economic States of West Africa, and the Southern African Development Community.

The studies aim to benchmark the effectiveness of anticorruption commissions through a systematic audit of state compliance with normative frameworks as well as with continental and regional standards. This is the first standalone study conducted, which aims to assess the effectiveness and the institutional architecture of anticorruption in Rwanda, which is overseen by the Office of the Ombudsman.

The aim of this report is to describe the mandate, implementation and effectiveness of this key institution, which is responsible for putting into effect the uncompromising anticorruption stance of the Rwandan government.
