Abstract

There are a number of different ways to try to reduce or eliminate the misuse of funds, integrity violations or the chance of fraud and corruption occurring in projects that are utilising the funds provided by an international organisation. They include actions undertaken for or by the project team itself, actions taken by companies to avoid getting into difficult situations (or even committing criminal offences) and other ways in which fraud, corruption and illegalities can be deterred or prevented.
