A review of anti-corruption reform measures in the defence sector in Colombia

This background paper is the result of an open-source research and interviews with current and past state and non-state actors involved in anti-corruption efforts in the Colombian defence sector. Its purpose is to document a reform process that can be examined by other reform-minded nations.

It begins by describing the initial assessment work carried out by Transparency International’s Colombia and UK chapters and concludes by drawing out key elements influencing the degree of success of each reform.
