Welcome to the Transnational Research Institute on Corruption (TRIC)
The Transnational Research Institute on Corruption (TRIC) was established in 2010 as a cross disciplinary Centre to bring together the Australian National University's expertise in the study of corruption. Its focus is policy relevant research related to public policy, development, foreign bribery and corruption in the private sector. TRIC has also developed a teaching capacity in corruption and corruption prevention, and undertaken technical assistance to international, federal and state authorities.
To conduct research on public corruption and devise ways to reduce it
To develop a coherent area of study, bringing together scholars who might not previously have seen synergy in their work
To provide opportunities for graduate students
To engage locally, nationally and internationally with government agencies and civil society organizations that work in the corruption arena, or are affected by it
To collaborate with other scholars who have an interest in this field
To develop a critical mass of corruption research within the Australian National University
While TRIC's initial focus is on public corruption, it is envisaged that TRIC will expand its scope to deal with corruption in the private sector and civil society organisations.
