The language of this session is English. Renewing development aid with integrity requires a shift in thinking about how corruption undermines aid from one that focuses on zero tolerance of fiscal malfeasance to a broader understanding of the ways corruption can impede aid effectiveness. While corruption mainstreaming as an idea is not new, CJL’s framework uses the DAC evaluation criteria of efficiency, effectiveness, relevance, impact, and sustainability to broaden the analysis of how corruption can undermine aid. Our new framework identifies several anticipatable ways that corruption undermines programs’ achievement of these criteria and further explores the consequences for exacerbation of fragility and conflict. We propose steps one needs to take to identify and mitigate each type of corruption threat and its capacity to undermine governance and social cohesion. This framework is derived from a vast literature review on how to adapt anti-corruption programming in FCAS. https://corruptionjusticeandlegitimacy.org
