What is a ‘tool’?
A corruption assessment tool is defined as any research methodology whose primary aim is to identify the extent of corruption, corruption risks, and/or anti-corruption (integrity, transparency, accountability) in a given context. Tools range from ‘out-of-the box’ methodologies and guidelines which are ready to use, to one-off assessments whose methodology is clearly explained and deemed replicable and useful to others.
