This article aims to bring a human rights perspective to corruption monitoring. While research has been done to explore the link between human rights and corruption, whether and how a human rights perspective could help to improve corruption monitoring has not been examined yet. The article is divided into four parts. The second part examines the rationale of both human rights monitoring and corruption monitoring, and how the former can help to improve the latter. The third part discusses the development and characteristics of both human rights indicators and corruption indicators. It also discusses the creation of indicators for monitoring corruption from a human rights perspective. The fourth part examines how a framework for monitoring corruption from a human rights perspective could be developed. It maps the different possibilities in the light of three existing frameworks of related fields. The fifth part discusses monitoring corruption from a human rights perspective in operation. It studies the kinds of data that could help to improve corruption monitoring and deals with the actors who should be involved in the monitoring.
