Capacity building for the Nigerian Navy: Eyes wide shut on corruption? Pervasive corruption in the Nigerian maritime security sector facilitates smuggling, piracy and oil theft. Building capacity while ignoring corruption risks making corruption and related crimes worse. The United States Africa Command provides capacity building to the Nigerian Navy. The Command safeguards its programme finances, but does not directly address corruption in partner agencies. The United States Africa Command and other donors should make anti-corruption measures an integral part of the training they provide. Åse Gilje Østensen, Sheelagh Brady, Sofie Arjon Schütte (2018) Bergen: Chr.
