inpbpm :How can corruption be countered?

To address the corruption problem in individual countries a comprehensive and global approach is required. National and international systems of transparency and accountability must be built up.

This includes introduction or strengthening of preventive and punitive measures.

The preventive measures are intended to create conditions that promote good, honest, transparent and efficient public management, as well as high standards in the private sector. The punitive measures punish corrupt actions taken, by means of judicial or administrative organs. Countering corruption also requires enhanced international cooperation. Individual governments can make progress with domestic preventive and punitive measures but, given the international aspects of corruption, they will also need to cooperate with other governments in order to have lasting success. This may take the form of mutual legal assistance. Cross-border international cooperation in law  enforcement is often key to the successful prevention and prosecution of corruption cases. Development cooperation is also a necessity since some countries will neither be able to address domestic corruption nor help other countries in cross-border law enforcement without technical and financial assistance. Anti-corruption conventions provide a framework for strengthening preventive and punitive measures. They also address the need for international cooperation and provide frameworks for technical assistance.

inpbpm :The Corruption of Principles and the Decline of the State

The corruption of each government begins almost always with the corruption of its principles…Once the principles of a government have been corrupted, even the best laws become bad and will turn against the State; whereas when the principles remain healthy, bad laws may have the effect of good ones; the force of principle carries everything with it…

Few laws are not good when the State has not lost its principles; and, as Epicurus relates in speaking of wealth: “It is not the liquor which has become corrupted, but the vessel that holds it.”
