In the third episode of Vcheck Global’s podcast RiskWatch, we speak with Jessica Noll, who published a research study in February 2019 examining the history of anti-corruption efforts and institutions in Egypt titled, “Fighting Corruption or Protecting the Regime?”.

In our talk, Noll explains how corruption takes hold of societies and the true motivations of some regimes’ efforts promoting anti-corruption campaigns and creating anti-corruption bodies.
