The purpose of this book is to understand the rise, future and implications of two important new kinds of integrity warriors - official anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) and anti-corruption NGOs - and to locate them in a wider context and history of anti-corruption activity. Key issues of corruption and anti-corruption are discussed in an integrated and invative way; through a number of country studies including Taiwan and South Korea, South East Europe, Fiji, Russia and the Baltic States. Some of the questions, used to examine the development of new anti-corruption actors, include: * In what context were these born? * How do they operate in pursuing their mission and mandate? * How successful have they been in relation to expected results? * To what extent are governmental and n governmental actors aware of each other and how far do they cooperate towards the common goal of fighting corruption? * What explains the shift in emphasis after the end of the cold war, from national to international action? Governments, NGOs and Anti-Corruption will be of interest to students and scholars of corruption, public policy, political science, developmental studies and law.
