Counter corruption reform in post-conflict countries

This report provides a review of the available literature on the challenges faced by three post-conflict countries in their attempts to combat corruption: Rwanda, Liberia and Serbia. It concludes that a combination of thorough legislation, institution-building, training and education programmes, rationalisation measures and decentralisation policies have aided countries in reducing corruption. However, the particular measures undertaken by individual governments must of course mirror the exact and unique challenges it faces. Each country must choose those mechanisms which will help it address its unique social, cultural, and institutional barriers.
