Abstract

On 13 October 2011 the EU Commission adopted the Agenda for Change (AfC). The AFC stated that EU assistance should focus on two priority areas: (i) Human rights, democracy and other key elements of good governance, and (ii) Inclusive and sustainable growth for human development.This study investigates how the EU and other international actors have treated the nexus between good governance and corruption in policy and practice. It focuses on three core areas specifically that deserve further attention as part of the implementation of the AfC, namely: (i) ‘Corruption and Good Governance’, (ii) Corruption and Human Rights’ and (iii) ‘Corruption and Development’.
