Cooperation with UNODC

Since March 2017, the network established a cooperation with UNODC. The E4J initiative creates and disseminates education materials in UNODC mandated areas of crime prevention and criminal justice.


KorrWiss is a German-speaking research network founded by Johann Steudle and Jamie-Lee Campbell in 2013.


Some of the ICRNetwork founding members (Annika Engelbert, Oksana Huss, Nils Köbis, Ina Kubbe and Anna Schwickerath) met in a KorrWiss colloquium and developed the idea to expand KorrWiss to an international corruption research network committed to similar principles. We therefore consider KorrWiss as our "corruption research home" whose continuation and advancement is fundamental to us.
