The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Center has just published the introductory chapter to a new U4 issue paper, Corruption Risks in the Criminal Justice Chain and Tools for Assessment. The forthcoming paper has separate chapters that examine where corruption is most likely to arise in the 1) investigation, 2) prosecution, and 3) trial of a criminal case and in 4) the detention of suspects and incarceration of convicted defendants. The chapters also describe what tools exist to to assess these risks. The introductory chapter, co-authored by this writer, summarizes the four chapters.
U4 will release the other four chapters one by one in January 2015. Join U4’s linked-in group for updates and to interact with the authors who will answer questions and respond to comments in these weeks:
