Prof. Liz David-Barrett and Aoife Murray introduce the first in a new podcast series about the Global Programme for Measuring Corruption ('GPMC') from the International Anti-Corruption Academy in Vienna, Austria.
Liz is Head of The Global Programme of Measuring Corruption.
Aoife is a Senior Researcher on the Programme.
How we measure corruption shapes how we view and address the problem. Governance indicators create and spread international standards, influence the drivers of economic growth and affect our views about government performance. This material and reputational impact makes it critically important that they are as accurate – and actionable - as possible.
Yet measuring corruption is also extraordinarily difficult and complex. Great strides have been made in recent years, but there are no easy answers.
Therefore, the Global Programme for Measuring Corruption seeks to take the conversation about measurement to the next level, through two work streams to investigate the ‘demand’ for corruption indicators and map the ‘supply’ of innovative methodological approaches.
In this first episode Liz and Aoife tell us about their professional background, why they wanted to join this programme, its purpose, how it works and how you can get involved in it.
