Recognising the growing interest and many parallel projects on measuring corruption risks in public procurement across the globe, this workshop is aiming to review progress to-date and assess different measurement approaches. The workshop is part of the ongoing large-scale EU funded research project DIGIWHIST. The workshop will provide a highly interactive and structured discussion forum for researchers, governments, journalists, as well as NGOs wishing to develop and apply bespoke corruption proxies which are fit for their environments and their particular needs. By offering a unique insight into the ongoing data collection efforts covering 35 European jurisdictions and the indicator building opportunities this work opens up, we hope to galvanize the academic and policy field and inspire future work.
1) Clear indicator selection criteria and solid understanding of how to tailor and test promising corruption proxies;
2) Clear set of indicators passing validity tests and a set of promising indicators which may be developed to reach sufficient validity; and
3) Establishing a community of researchers and users working in the field supporting ongoing work.
