DFID and British Academy name anti-corruption project leader

A £4-million research partnership between the British Academy and the UK Department for International Development has appointed Paul Heywood, professor of European politics, as project leader.

The anti-corruption scheme, which was launched in March, will provide grants of up to £400,000 for multidisciplinary research exploring policies and interventions in different countries that have managed to reduce corruption. The names of the winning projects will be announced in January.

Heywood, who works at the University of Nottingham, will oversee and advise the teams that secure funding under the scheme and report back to DFID and the British Academy on their progress.
