The First Reprint of “The Link between Corruption and Poverty: Lessons from Kenya Case Studies”

This book is designed to create greater awareness of the effects and consequences of corruption and to help build public consensus on the need to fight corruption. It draws from both theoretical and practical insights to suggest anti-corruption strategies that emphasize preventive rather than punitive measures. The book offers suggestions on an action plan to deal with corruption and concludes that preventing corruption helps to reduce poverty, improve service delivery and restore public confidence. The reprinting of the book has aided wider distribution to secondary schools in Kenya and to research institutes across Africa.
