NGOs, development organizations, and governments alike now universally refer to corruption - no longer a taboo subject - as a developmental problem. As the awareness-raising phase of the 1990s subsides, the focus is shifting to implementation of anticorruption reforms and enforcement of international conventions. This edition of the Local Governance Brief provides a short history of the anticorruption movement, as illustrated by Heather Marquette's opening piece on the World Bank's role in anticorruption efforts, and through case studies, provides examples of fresh and innovative work in the anticorruption field, which point to the road ahead, such as the activities of the NGO Global Witness in the UK or Transparencia in Peru.
