Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Assistance

2008 — By Daniel Maxwell, Peter Walker, Cheyanne Church, Paul Harvey, Kevin Savage, Sarah Bailey, Roslyn Hees, Marie-Luise Ahlendorf

This report by Transparency International describes the research on the problem of corruption in humanitarian assistance, based on evidence from seven major international NGOs. It does not try to assess the degree of corruption in any one agency, or country, rather it seeks to document perceptions of corruption in humanitarian operations. It looks at the context of humanitarian assistance, the risks and consequences of corruption, the policies and practices some agencies are using to mitigate or manage corruption risks, and the gaps in addressing corruption. It goes on to make recommendations for action in good practices in managing corruption risk and combating corrupt practices in humanitarian assistance.
