Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary General
Research underpins most of what we do at AU Watch. We carry out authoritative research, provides strategic analysis and practical solutions to assist AU decision-makers and other stakeholders in achieving their goals. We carry out extensive research and evaluation in formats accessible to a broad audience. We also carry out independent and rigorous analysis of critical African, regional, and country-specific challenges and opportunities related to corruption. Research strengthens our work, helps us to evaluate our impact and reach and contributes to the exchange of policy ideas. Our broader goal is to achieve award-winning (news and broadcast) analysis and reports, papers, books, and other research outputs that will be vital resources for leaders and policymakers in government, the private sector, and civil society.
The nature of corruption and its dynamics dictate the multidisciplinary research needed to achieve the objectives of research. AU Watch believes that there is a significant lack of empirical research in the associated fields of corruption. We also believe that effective research results will be realized when stakeholders collaborate to facilitate conducting empirical research rather than funding mere research. We aim to develop new ideas on how best to confront critical challenges faced by the AU / AUMS and take advantage of opportunities to resolve challenges confronting its various programs and institutions.
AU Watch and Empirical Research
To fight corruption effectively and reach for real results, empirical research is our service in trade. Due to the unique nature of corruption and the destructive and catastrophic consequences of it, nations, governments, or organizations will not thrive if they do not address corruption seriously.
AU Watch welcome all kinds of cooperation to conduct empirical research in any field that is directly related to fraud and corruption.
