Government Anti-Corruption Strategies : A Cross-Cultural Perspective Hardback

Edited by Yahong (+1Rutgers University, Newark, New Jersey, USA) Zhang, Cecilia Lavena


As a political and social disease, public corruption costs governments and businesses around the world trillions of dollars every year. Government Anti-Corruption Strategies: A Cross-Cultural Perspective provides you with a better understanding of public corruption and governments' anti-corruption practices.

It outlines a general framework of anti-corruption strategies that governments undertake to effectively curb corrupt practices.

Case studies of several countries illustrate how governments put anti-corruption strategies into practice. This book provides case studies of anti-corruption efforts in several countries, including China, India, South Korea, Nepal, and Central and Eastern European countries.

It focuses on developing and transitional countries, where the depth and effects of corruption are especially severe.

The cases highlight examples of failure as well as success so that the complexity of corruption issues and the reasons why corruption persists can be better understood. Most of the contributors to each chapter are native to the countries under discussion and provide an insider's view and analysis.

They expose some of the appalling depths to which corruption can go.

In governments where accountability is generally weak, legal institutions are poorly developed, civil liberties and political competition are often restricted, and laws are frequently flouted, it is the people who ultimately suffer. Government Anti-Corruption Strategies: A Cross-Cultural Perspective represents an international effort to foster a better understanding of the issues surrounding corruption.

This compelling collection of studies offers insights into real-life cases of corruption that help you equip yourself to stem corruption when it appears.
