Countering the Corrupt

This book pulls together the themes discussed at four conferences on the fight against corruption in Africa which were held between 2014 and 2018 and which were organised by the KAS' Rule of Law Program for Sub Saharan Africa and the Institute for Accountability in Southern Africa. The book endeavours to share with the readers, the gist of those discussions in ‘a digestible and easily accessible format’.
