The paper promotes an anti-corruption strategy that rests on economic development, democratic reform, strong civil society and the presence of rule of law. Based on these principles, the authors recommend concrete measures to be implemented at the national and international level and emphasize the need for coordination with economic and social policies and the development of a civic political culture. The paper also gives information about the activities and experiences of international institutions in the fight against corruption and introduces an evidence-based, non-partisan, inclusive as well as comprehensive and impact-orientated approach to fight corruption.
