Abstract:This thesis focuses on the UNDP anti-corruption measures in education and their implementation in Iraq in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Qualitative Education). To assess this specific fragile context, the thesis addresses the following research question: To what extent has Iraq implemented the methods and tools to fight corruption in education in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 4? This assessment begins by addressing fragility, corruption, and corruption in connection with education, which are explored in light of public governance. The consequences of fragility on service delivery and on corruption are outlined. This paper argues, that the implementation of the UNDP methods reduces corruption in education and would therefore support the successful implementation of SDG4 in Iraq. The case study of Iraq uses a longitudinal research design, while applying the method of process tracing and is based on secondary data. It concludes that only one out of four dimensions of the UNDP anti-corruption methods were fully implemented, endangering the successful implementation of SDG4 by 2030 in Iraq. The research contributes to the field of public governance providing knowledge about the implementation of anti-corruption measures in highly corrupt countries.
