This thesis deals with the significance of institutional structures and their outcomes when combating corruption. It investigates Rwanda's outstanding progress in implementing anti-corruption policies and building strong institutions to fight corruption. Concepts such as the quality of government and good governance has been used to explain the country’s success within the anti-corruption framework. The aim was to examine the causes which has affected the decreased levels of corruption. Methodologically, a theory-consuming case study has been conducted to distinguish the underlying reasons to the success. The study uses discourse analyse to construe the case from three possible explanatory factors: the quality of government, gender promotion, and the effects of the genocide. Results shows that all factors in some way has affected Rwanda’s anti-corruption design and that the country has succeed in the creation of an institutional culture which includes both the public governance and the civil society, which seems to be of particular relevance when fighting corruption and in the building of fair institutions according to the theory.
