WHAT DO YOU DO TO FIGHT CORRUPTION?
Our three guiding principles are: build partnerships, proceed step-by-step and stay non-confrontational. We have learned from experience that corruption can only be kept in check if representatives from government, business and civil society work together to develop standards and procedures they all support. We also know that corruption can’t be rooted out in one big sweep. Rather, fighting it is a step-by-step, project-by-project process. Our non-confrontational approach is necessary to get all relevant parties around the negotiating table. transparency.org
- What is corruption?
The simplest definition is: Corruption is the misuse of public power (by elected politician or appointed civil servant) for private gain. In order to ensure that not only public corruption but also private corruption between individuals and businesses could be covered by the same simple definition:
Corruption is the misuse of entrusted power (by heritage, education, marriage, election, appointment or whatever else) for private gain.This broader definition covers not only the politician and the public servant, but also the CEO and CFO of a company, the notary public, the team leader at a workplace, the administrator or admissions-officer to a private school or hospital, the coach of a soccer team and so on.
- How do you fight corruption?According to http://www.transparency.org/ There is no silver bullet for fighting corruption. Many countries have made significant progress in curbing corruption, however practitioners are always on the lookout for solutions and evidence of impact. Here are five ways that citizens and governments can make progress in the fight against corruption:
1. END IMPUNITY
Effective law enforcement is essential to ensure the corrupt are punished and break the cycle of impunity, or freedom from punishment or loss.
Successful enforcement approaches are supported by a strong legal framework, law enforcement branches and an independent and effective court system. Civil society can support the process with initiatives such as Transparency International’s Unmask the Corrupt campaign.
2. REFORM PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE MANAGEMENT
Reforms focussing on improving financial management and strengthening the role of auditing agencies have in many countries achieved greater impact than public sector reforms on curbing corruption.
One such reform is the disclosure of budget information, which prevents waste and misappropriation of resources. For example, Transparency International Sri Lanka promotes transparent and participatory budgeting by training local communities to comment on the proposed budgets of their local government.
3. PROMOTE TRANSPARENCY AND ACCESS TO INFORMATION
Countries successful at curbing corruption have a long tradition of government openness, freedom of the press, transparency and access to information. Access to information increases the responsiveness of government bodies, while simultaneously having a positive effect on the levels of public participation in a country.
Transparency International Maldives successfully advocated for the adoption of one of the world’s strongest rights to information law by putting pressure on local MPs via a campaign of SMS text messages.
4. EMPOWER CITIZENS
Strengthening citizens demand for anti-corruption and empowering them to hold government accountable is a sustainable approach that helps to build mutual trust between citizens and government. For example, community monitoring initiatives have in some cases contributed to the detection of corruption, reduced leakages of funds, and improved the quantity and quality of public services.
To monitor local elections, Transparency International Slovenia produced an interactive map that the public populated with pictures and reports of potential irregularities in the election. As a result, cases of public funds being misused to support certain candidates were spotted.
5. CLOSE INTERNATIONAL LOOPHOLES
Without access to the international financial system, corrupt public officials throughout the world would not be able to launder and hide the proceeds of looted state assets. Major financial centres urgently need to put in place ways to stop their banks and cooperating offshore financial centres from absorbing illicit flows of money.
The European Union recently approved the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive, which requires EU member-states to create registers of the beneficial owners of companies established within their borders. However, the directive does not require these registers to be made public. Similarly, the Norwegian, UK, and Ukrainian governments have all approved legislation requiring companies to disclose information about their owners, although these have yet to come into force.

- The Cause of Corruptions?According to reference.com - Corruption also flourishes in areas in which resources are scarce, and the competition for them may lead some to become corrupt in either obtaining more of them or policing the distribution of them. Controlling corruption requires a balance between opportunity to obtain those things one desires with discretion in allocating them and accountability in how they are allocated. Many developing nations simply aren't stabilized enough to be able to form a central core that is organized enough to fend off corruption.Corruption occurs in developed nations as well, particularly in ones where there is a strong correlation between financial worth, status and power. In some instances, corruption can have some short-term positive effects, particularly in those nations where too much government control is placed over resources. Here, corruption with the community still provides a system in which private citizens can gain those resources at a price and temporarily stabilizes the economy. Ultimately, though, corruption usually has negative effects on an economy through the funding of money into bribes and overpricing of goods and services, which puts a financial strain on too many people for too long. It also leads to tremendous distrust of public officials by citizens. It may also lead to an overall increase in crime.
