Concurrent with the launch of the ‘Cost of Non-Europe in the Area of Corruption’ study, RAND Europe undertook an extensive outreach campaign—including a press release, a blog post and social media activity—to communicate the report’s main findings and recommendations. As a result of the outreach programme, the report was featured in more than 200 media outlets across 12 European countries. The overall reach of this media coverage was over 100 million people.
