What is BridgeGap?

Key Objectives

BridgeGap treats corruption as a policy problem and focuses on understanding both the domestic vulnerabilities and the cross-border factors that undermine the control of corruption. From January 2024 to December 2027, BridgeGap will aim to:

  • Fill the knowledge gaps regarding the degree to which corruption infiltrates open societies and threatens the democratic order, and the mechanism used. 
  • Assess, explain and find solutions to the digital transparency gaps, ranging from the use of technology in corruption and anticorruption to public accountability and integrity. 
  • Find solutions to regulatory gaps and enforcement gaps assessing the comprehensiveness and consistency of public accountability and anticorruption regulation across EU member states and neighbouring countries. 
  • Fill the academia–policy gap in corruption studies.
