Effectiveness of Anticorruption Agencies in West Africa
This research assesses efforts in fighting corruption in six countries in West Africa with very different governance, macroeconomic, sociopolitical, and institutional characteristics: Benin, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, and Sierra Leone.
Similar research has been undertaken by the Open Society Foundation’s Africa Regional Office in Eastern and Southern Africa. The raison d’être was to carry out a comparative study which would examine the rationale underlying the successes and failures of agencies devoted to the prevention and combating of corruption, with the aim ultimately being to establish ways and means of strengthening anticorruption efforts on the African continent.
