CDD is a member of Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) Research Consortium. The Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) research programme – led by SOAS, University of London – takes an innovative approach to anti-corruption policy and practice. ACE is responding to the serious challenges facing people and economies affected by corruption by generating evidence that makes anti-corruption real and using those findings to help policymakers, business and civil society adopt new, feasible, high-impact strategies to tackle corruption. The Centre is working on three major research areas focusing rent-seeking in power sector (https://ace.soas.ac.uk/?p=2136), fertilizer subsidy (https://ace.soas.ac.uk/?p=419) and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) (https://ace.soas.ac.uk/?p=416) in Nigeria.
The project is supported by the Department for International Development (DfID)
