Peace and Corruption: Lowering Corruption - A Transformative Factor for Peace
"This report explores the connections between peace and corruption, focusing on the empirical trends between the most authoritative measures of peace and corruption.  It fills an important gap as the linkages between peace and corruption are still being deeply studied.

The analysis finds that there is a statistically significant relationship between peace and corruption.  The most striking aspect of this relationship is the presence of a 'tipping point'.  If a country has low levels of cofrruption then increases in corruption will have little effect on peace.  However, once a certain threshold is reached then small increases in corruption can result in large decreases in peace."
