Corruption in Bangladesh is endemic and permeates through all levels of society. Not much progress can be made without reforming the institutions that foster and maintain corrupt practices through political patronage, a close and pervasive link between bureaucrats and politicians, and a weak implementation of law and regulation.
Understanding the nature and magnitude of corruption through research and surveys is vital in creating awareness and demand for fighting corruption and establishing transparent and accountable governance. Anti-corruption research is, therefore, one of the key components of the projects implemented by TIB till date.
TIB undertakes various types of research with objectives in line with its vision and mission. Such objectives include generating knowledge, measuring magnitude and impacts of corruption, initiating policy dialogue, informing common people, offering recommendations, and bringing in positive changes in the concerned sector or institution.
