Best Practice on Anti-Corruption Incentives and Sanctions for Business

The project aims at providing interested parties from government, business, and civil society with an overview of existing and potential mechanisms for incentives and sanctions to encourage companies to engage against corruption. Further to a multi-stakeholder selection process of priorities, comprehensive research will be conducted to prepare a catalog of qualitative assessments of the effectiveness or reasons for failures of each identified anti-corruption incentive and sanction. This will include explanatory comments to facilitate their increased or improved use in enforcement practice and as voluntary measures.

The applicability of selected key incentives and sanctions will be tested with local multi-stakeholder pilot groups in selected countries by identifying key agents and moderating dialogs to advance the effective change process. Outcomes of these activities will be used to develop:

  1. A practitioner handbook that comprises experiences, lessons learned and best practices; 
  2. Learning modules to support online as well as in-person training.

Both outcomes provide a sustainable framework for further education and motivation in implementing such mechanisms.
