Basel Institute on Governance
Team Leader, Green Corruption Programme
Juhani Grossmann leads the Basel Institute's Green Corruption programme and is Senior Advisor for Central and Eastern Europe . He joined the Basel Institute in April 2020. Prior to joining the Institute, he spent nine years leading anti-corruption and good governance programmes in Indonesia. In the Philippines, he managed a programme on campaign finance reform that resulted in the first obligatory disclosure of expenditure records by political candidates. Over five years in Ukraine, he organised the biggest election observation mission worldwide at that time, fielding over 1,000 international observers to monitor the 2004 presidential elections and uncovering widespread election fraud. After the ensuing Orange Revolution, he advised the new government in strengthening its anti-corruption reforms through extensive research on corruption patterns in customs, healthcare, education and licensing. Prior to Ukraine, he worked on civil society and political party capacity building in Russia.
