WHY:        Corruption was a core driver of the frustration that led to Egypt’s January 25th revolution. To fight corruption, it is essential to examine the political, economic, and social institutions that enable it to thrive. As the country makes the transition to democracy, Egyptians face an unprecedented opportunity to strike at the roots of corruption in the design of Egypt’s new democratic institutions.
