CIPE-GBSN Anti-Corruption Research Partnership
Through its work with its Anti-Corruption and Governance Center, the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) seeks to improve understanding of how corporate anti-corruption training impacts companies that implement anti-corruption initiatives, to harness the research of business schools around the globe in developing anti-corruption programs, and to provide feedback that will refine CIPE’s anti-corruption program design and development. CIPE and GBSN funded research to understand how anti-corruption interventions such as anti-corruption compliance training and the implementation of internal anti-bribery rules and controls influence individual and organizational behavior and performance.
