Robin J. Lewis is a senior research associate and associate fellow in the Governance Studies program at the Brookings Institution. She is the deputy director of the Leveraging Transparency to Reduce Corruption project (LTRC), a global initiative to develop and disseminate leading practices for reducing corruption along the natural resource value chain.

West) of the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) reports. FDIP aims to evaluate commitment to and progress toward financial inclusion across a set of geographically, economically, and politically diverse countries.
