International Drivers of Corruption

A Tool for Analysis

image of International Drivers of Corruption

Corruption and other governance problems result primarily from processes generated within the domestic political economy. There are major international factors, however, that interact with domestic processes: international drivers of corruption. This report introduces an analytical tool to help readers understand how these international drivers of corruption affect governance and corruption at the country level. It provides a means for identifying those drivers that matter most for domestic governance, as well as opportunities for international actors to work more effectively to improve governance in specific country contexts.


Zambia case study

This case study aims to illustrate the application of the international drivers of corruption framework, by providing an initial analysis of the main international drivers affecting Zambia. It is structured around the four steps of the framework and the guiding questions. After briefly analysing the political economy context and highlighting a range of significant international drivers, it explores two drivers in more detail: foreign business bribery and the international role in the prosecution of former President Chiluba.
