National Strategy for Combating Corruption in Afghanistan: A Critical Assessment

This research was carried out to identify the internal and external actors and factors that shaped Afghanistan’s National Strategy for Combating Corruption (NSCC), assess implementation of NSCC to date, identify issues for consideration in future anticorruption policy making, and make recommendations on closing the gap between NSCC objectives and outcomes. The report concludes that while a number of tangible accomplishments have been made, much remains to be done in tackling corruption in Afghanistan, requiring a strategy with a considerably longer time span of NSCC’s two years and allocation of earmarked technical, human, and financial resources.
