Read Abstract

Heather Marquette is Professor of Development Politics and is currently seconded part-time to FCDO’s Research and Evidence Division as Senior Research Fellow (Governance and Conflict). Heather’s research, which has been funded by the British Academy/Global Challenges Research Fund, DFID, DFAT and the EU, focuses on corruption and anti-corruption interventions, development politics, aid and foreign policy and, increasingly, transnational organised crime.

Stephen Musau is a practitioner in human rights, good governance, peace and security, practising in Kenya, with numerous professional training in the same fields among others. He has extensive experience in designing, leading and supervising projects with a keen interest in human rights, peace and security, policing, conflict prevention, management and transformation. Currently, he is serving with the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA), a civilian State agency in Kenya that oversees the National Police Service and looks after Inspections, Research and Monitoring.

Tuesday Reitano is Deputy Director at the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime and a senior research advisor at the Institute for Security Studies in Pretoria, where she leads the ENACT programme on behalf of the GI. She has authored a number of policy-orientated and academic reports with leading institutions such as the UN, World Bank and OECD on topics ranging from organized crime’s evolution and impact in Africa, on human smuggling, illicit financial flows, and the nexus between crime, terrorism, security and development as well as books on these topics.


Joseph Pozsgai-Alvarez is Associate Professor at the School of Human Sciences at Osaka University. His research deals with issues of corruption tolerance, ethical decision-making, and the politics of anti-corruption.
