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 innovative 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 non 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. Luís de Sousa is an Associate Researcher at CIES-ISCTE, Portugal and Calouste Gulbenkian Fellow at the European University Institute, Italy. Barry Hindess is Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the Australian National University, Australia. Peter Larmour is a Reader in Public Policy and Governance at the Crawford School of Economics and Government, Australian National University, Australia.

Internet, satellite channels and new technologies are evolving and progressing by the day allowing free flow and exchange of information and ideas. And despite governments’ attempts to frustrate or quash independent players and research centers, the number of independent activists is dramatically increasing and the NGOs are booming. And if corruption were a sensitive subject to governments, it has become a basic commodity on internet websites, NGOs work and discussion programs on satellite channels that are watched and heard by millions across the Arab world. Tackling corruption is no longer a monopoly of government-appointed experts and lawyers. It had reached activists and the societies from all backgrounds. There are few civil society organizations that tackle corruption in this region but are on the rise. In numbers, the Arab civil society in general is witnessing a noticeable vivacity in a number of Arab countries and multiplying by the day despite the restrictive laws and regulations. ... Certainly, civil society can contribute much to cure corruption, but influential countries such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia do not promote anti-corruption activities or for that matter the establishment of NGOs to fight it. Its main dilemma however is related to finding sources for funding for its activities and development. And while the most common mechanism for encouraging individuals and corporations to make cash and in-kind donations to NGOs is through tax incentives for donors, tax deductions by law are given to individuals who build mosques. Arab countries that do allocate support and tax exemptions to NGOs make sure that recipient societies follow rather than monitor their policies. And though regimes acknowledge the repercussions of rampant corruption on their economies and on foreign investment, they remain hesitant in encouraging the civil society to carry the torch or initiating dramatic changes. In the words of Ahmed Lari, chief of the Kuwaiti Association for Public Funds: Corruption delays development because officials gear budgets toward projects that make them money rather than toward those that can benefit peoples such as education, health and public services.(5) From the Introduction

This volume brings together some of the most recent scholarship on government and civil society. It examines the axis of the relationship between national governments and civil society organisations (NGOs) by highlighting commonalities as well as differences among four key regions in the world. Using the stability vs. instability framework, the book explores a range of pertinent issues, including human rights, development, foreign policy, state-building, regime change, governance frameworks, wars and civil liberties. It studies diverse situations, from those entailing comprehensive cooperation to those involving politically contentious and revolutionary activities. With case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), this volume will be useful to scholars and researchers of political science, global politics, international relations, sociology, development studies, global governance and public policy, as well as to those in the development sector and NGOs.

"Over the last decade, privatization, decentralization, and public procurement processes in Central and Eastern Europe have provided opportunities for unscrupulous public officials and their cronies in business to benefit financially from their unfair, and often illegal, access to public funds." "Conflict of interest involves the power of public officials to promote their private interest, the private interests of their relatives, or the commercial enterprises in which they participate. A legal and regulatory framework on conflict of interest would prohibit public officials from engaging in private businesses that could benefit from their public positions, require officials to disclose private interest in any issue under consideration, or force them to withdraw from participation in such decisions." "Among its strongest conclusions, Combating Conflict of Interest recommends: the establishment of a clear legal regime related to local government employees and elected officials; the development of a monitoring, accountability, and sanction system; the implementation of an effective audit and risk assessment mechanism; efficient legal remedies against biased decisions on concessions, licenses, subsidies, tax breaks, and land management; legal and binding declarations of local officials' private interests; the adoption of an obligatory code of ethics; withdrawal procedures from potential conflicts of interest for all officials; and a Commission of Ethics for reporting and investigating cases and enforcing sanctions." "Reports on conflict of interest in Bulgaria, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Slovakia are included in this new volume of the Local Government Policy Partnership."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Written to provide guidance for civil society organizations and their client groups, this book examines the role of NGOs in the development processes on the African continent. It raises questions about the influence of funding agencies over the NGOs they support and explores the challenges NGOs face. The book argues that increased knowledge and cooperation on all parts is essential to achieve sustainable development. This book also concludes that sustainable development activities are not beneficial to every community in Africa. Taking into consideration globalization and studies of sub-Saharan countries, this book concludes that news models of leadership are necessary for the success of Africa, and NGOs are a vital part of achieving that development.
