Summary A new Future of Peace Operations (FOPO) program study by Alix J. Boucher, William J. Durch, Margaret Midyette, Sarah Rose and Jason Terry, examines corruption in war-torn states and summarizes best practices for fighting it. Mapping and Fighting Corruption in War-Torn States reviews and consolidates, from the English-language literature on the subject, what the world's specialists in corruption have to say about how to recognize and fight it in post-conflict circumstances, especially where international peace operations are deployed. Its structured summary or "meta-analysis" of the literature is built around two charts: one that depicts patterns of corruption in post-conflict states and a second that maps and connects the most frequently mentioned steps for dealing with it. The latter closely resembles a comprehensive state-building strategy. The study contains a preliminary assessment of anticorruption efforts in Liberia and concludes with recommendations on the sequencing of such measures in war-torn states
