Using political economy analysis to support corruption risk assessments that strengthen law enforcement against wildlife crime

Hosted by the Basel Institute on Governance as part of the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) Learning Series, this webinar addressed three learning questions:

  1. How does a political economy analysis (PEA) inform assessments of corruption risk in the investigation and prosecution of wildlife crimes? What can be learned from a PEA that other types of risk assessment might miss?
  2. How should findings from PEA inform the design or adaptation of corruption risk mitigation measures to improve conservation outcomes?
  3. What practical guidance should be followed when implementing PEA in contexts in which corruption is widespread and highly politicised?

The panel featured:

  • Claudia Baez Camargo, Basel Institute on Governance
  • Juhani Grossmann, Basel Institute on Governance
  • Saba Kassa, Consultant, Basel Institute on Governance
