Winning war against Corruption: What makes things work? What makes a difference?


These are the key questions to ask when we seek to win the fight against corruption. While laws and strategies are required, how to implement these laws and strategies is important. Therefore, a range of measures working together is necessary. The fight against corruption can be successful if the following strategies are put in place: (1) Making anti-corruption a mainstream initiative; (2) Making anti-corruption war the task of every person, not just specialists; (3) going beyond the definition of corruption and changing the attitudes of individuals in society; (4) addressing poor inter-institutional coordination; (5) working with a range of stakeholders; (6) accepting that corruption is a national problem, a reality to address; and (7) working with young people.
