Digitalisation has transformed the public and private sectors in many ways, affecting both the speed and scale at which tasks like communication or data analysis can be carried out. This is just as true for the field of anti-corruption, where ICT has opened new doors for the prevention, detection, and prosecution of corruption. While perpetrators get more creative in finding ways to corrupt or be corrupted, so do anti-corruption tools. From beneficial ownership registers, eProcurement systems to distributed ledger technologies, many digital ways of fighting corruption exist. However, are they really that adequate and effective? Designing the future of the fight against corruption also means to know how we best utilize and further develop the potential of digitalization. In this workshop we will discuss the pros and cons of tech-based approaches to anti-corruption, their strengths, weaknesses and lessons learned so far.
