Over the past 50 years Africa has lost out on more than $1 trillion due to corruption – money that could have substantially improved the lives and prospects of all the continent’s people.

This seminar launches two research papers that propose measures to deal with corruption. One covers corruption in the extractive industry in Africa, and the other examines the murky business of political party funding on the continent.
