Shedding light on the role of technology in tackling corruption
Emerging technologies, employed from the bottom up by civil society organisations, are helping to fight against corruption. The EU-funded BIT-ACT project will investigate anti-corruption technologies (ACTs) and study how civil society organisations engage with them to fight corruption. It will also assess the way ACTs enable intersections between bottom-up and top-down efforts and how they blend with the transnational dimension against corruption. The project’s work will uncover the impact of ACTs on the relationship between citizens and democratic institutions, providing key stakeholders with information on how to best use them from the bottom up. It will also contribute to the debate on anti-corruption with grounded concepts and models to explain ACTs.
