How does corruption affect the appropriateness and design of budget support? The aim of this issue paper is to compare the effectiveness of budget support versus that of other aid modalities - in particular project support - in partner countries characterized by corruption. It discusses how corruption affects or mediates the impact of budget support on developmental outcomes such as growth and poverty, but also the impact of budget support on institutional reform.
