The role of independent media in curbing corruption in fragile settings

This policy brief gives an overview of the evidence on the role of media in tackling corruption and the increasing economic and political challenges of media in fragile settings. It describes methods to support media in tackling corruption and argues that support to independent media should feature as a more prominent component of anti-corruption and accountability support strategies and that increasing financial support needs to be complemented with efforts at lesson learning to ensure that such support is effective.
