The Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence (GI-ACE) research programme supports 14 research partners around the world in generating new evidence that policymakers, practitioners, and advocates can use to design and implement more effective anti-corruption programmes. GI-ACE is part of the ongoing Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) research programme funded by the Department for International Development (DFID), and complements a parallel programme led by SOAS University of London. GI-ACE builds on an earlier phase of the programme that ran from 2015 to 2018.

To learn more about the individual projects please see the pages below, our one-pager, and our November 2018 blog introducing the programme.

Focus of the research

Our research focuses on innovative and practice-oriented projects, covering three priority areas:

  • Addressing the international architecture that supports corrupt exchanges
  • Promoting integrity systems in the public and private sectors
  • Tackling corruption at sub-national and sectoral levels

For more information, view the projects below.


The programme will produce outstanding research that helps decisionmakers address and solve real corruption problems, such as how to identify malfeasance in public procurement, deter the theft of medicinal drugs, or determine whether ethics training can reduce corruption in the public sector.

GI-ACE supports learning, communications, and engagement across all of our projects, and between researchers and practitioners across the world.
