Corruption is a multidimensional phenomenon that rears its head in many places. For this reason, it is difficult and challenging to assess how well a country is doing in addressing it. This volume examines corruption across a variety of sectors -- from the education and health and the oil and gas sectors to the roads, forestry, and electricity sectors -- and provides guidance to practitioners and policymakers in the design of anticorruption reforms in these areas.
