Corruption and gender inequality are closely connected. Corruption exacerbates gender inequalities and improving gender equality can help reduce and counter corruption. Men, women and non-binary persons are affected by corruption in different ways while people experience corruption differently depending on social variables such as age, gender identity and gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and religion or other beliefs. An intersectional gender perspective is therefore important for developing effective strategies to combat corruption, reduce gender inequalities and achieve sustainable development. This brief explores the inter-linkages between gender and corruption relevant in Sida’s work and provides recommendations for policy dialogue.
