Corruption Hunters Network

For 12 years, Norway has headed the Corruption Hunters Network, which consists of prosecutors, investigators and engaged individuals with a proven record in anti-corruption. We will continue to support this network, with a view to facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experience across borders.

The commitment refers to a particular ongoing initiative (the Corruption Hunters Network) – although it could have been more specific regarding the form of support intended.

Measurable: ❌ no

Clarification from Norad indicates that the support to the Corruption Hunters Network is in terms of continuing funding and coordinating the network.


As stated in its evaluation of Norway’s anti-corruption efforts for the period 2010-2019, Norad has continued its support to the Corruption Hunter Network throughout those years.[1] Facilitated by Norad since 2005, the network brings together around 20 individual investigators and prosecutors of corruption cases worldwide. Norad is the only agency funding the network, which makes the network unique, and Norad selects the members and invites them to events organised and paid for by the agency.[2] Norad’s support includes organising two meetings a year, creating space not only to exchange knowledge and experiences, but also to receive assistance and moral support in a safe environment operating under Chatham House rules.[3]

However, this commitment represents the continuation of Norad’s ongoing work with the Corruption Hunter Network, rather than a change or an action that could elevate the network to a higher level. For this reason, the commitment is not considered measurable.
