Abstract

The issue of corruption has come to centre stage. The economic consequences of pervasive corruption, and the recent trends towards democratization, have increased the pressure for accountability and transparency from those in office. Acknowledges that there are no easy solutions or models that can be applied in the fight against corruption. Argues that, while each country is unique in its own history and culture, its political and administrative systems, and its stage of development, similarities do exist, and experience and lessons are often transferable. Building on the notion of a national integrity system as a comprehensive approach to fighting corruption, examines two of the eight pillars of such a system, namely public sector anti‐corruption strategies and watchdog agencies.
