Summary

The purpose of this book is to understand the rise, future and implications of two important new kinds of "integrity warriors" - official anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) and anti-corruption NGOs – and to locate them in a wider context and history of anti-corruption activity.

Key issues of corruption and anti-corruption are discussed in an integrated and innovative way; through a number of country studies including Taiwan and South Korea, South East Europe, Fiji, Russia and the Baltic States. Some of the questions, used to examine the development of new anti-corruption actors, include:

  • In what context were these born?
  • How do they operate in pursuing their mission and mandate?
  • How successful have they been in relation to expected results?
  • To what extent are governmental and non governmental actors aware of each other and how far do they cooperate towards the common goal of fighting corruption?
  • What explains the shift in emphasis after the end of the cold war, from national to international action?

Governments, NGOs and Anti-Corruption will be of interest to students and scholars of corruption, public policy, political science, developmental studies and law.
