ERCAS develops and promotes a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to policy analysis, public management and development which seeks to:

  • give due importance to the role of informal institutions, often neglected if not altogether excluded from these disciplines;
  • highlight the role of individual agency while permanently questioning the assumptions of current approaches in corruption studies;
  • integrate historical research with advanced inferential and descriptive statistics;
  • control for developing versus developed institutional contexts
  • develop a new generation of fact-based indicators (as opposed to perception), displayed on our indicators webpage www.corruptionrisk.org.
