The Anti-Corruption Research Center (ACRC) is an independent, nonprofit organization leading the fight against corruption in the Democratic Republic of the Congo . We track corruption trends in the Democratic Republic of the Congo using research teams made up of academics and journalists, and use the evidence we generate to shape social accountability policies and practices. We help governments and public-private institutions solve complex problems related to corruption, money laundering and financial crime.
We track corruption trends in the Democratic Republic of the Congo using research teams made up of academics and journalists, and use the evidence we generate to shape social accountability policies and practices in governments and in public and private institutions. We help communities solve complex issues related to corruption and public integrity.
We mobilise citizens with innovations in technology to monitor and demand accountability from project implementers and service providers. Corruption impedes development, education, health sector including responses to Covid19, HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and others diseases; information and problem solving reduces its risk.
We facilitate self-advocacy and a constructive dialogue between governments, services providers and beneficiaries. Many of our programs focus on improving citizen feedback to service providers, supported by hard evidence and data and the preparation of authorities to receive citizen feedback. The result is better communication, better decision making, and better development results.
