The finals involved one round of oral arguments in which each oralist had 30 Minutes to submit.

Prof Migai Akech has contributed a chapter in THE QUIET POWER OF INDICATORS: MEASURING DEVELOPMENT, CORRUPTION, AND THE RULE OF LAW 248 (Sally Engle Merry, Kevin Davis, and Benedict Kingsbury, eds, Cambridge University Press, 2015).His chapter, Evaluating the Impact of Corruption (Perception) Indicators on Governance Discourses in Kenya, examines the production and use of the corruption indicators by TI-Kenya and the Government in the context of the fight against corruption and institutional reform in Kenya over the last decade. The chapter makes two arguments. First, although TI-Kenya’s approach to measuring corruption is useful, it is not only incomplete since it is largely concerned with bribery but has also had little impact on governmental decision-making on corruption. Although the TI-Kenya Bribery Index rankings name and shame “corrupt” institutions, they neither explain the causes of corruption nor give such institutions incentives to do better, apart from removal from the Index. Second, the Government’s approach to measuring corruption promises to reduce public sector corruption since it is an essential component of performance contracting, which requires public institutions, and gives them much needed incentives, to undertake institutional reforms. Nevertheless, the TI-Kenya Bribery Index remains a useful tool for monitoring the effectiveness of governmental efforts to eradicate public sector corruption.
