New book "Confront Corruption" reflects on fighting corruption in the past, present and the future

The President of the Basel Institute on Governance, Professor Mark Pieth, together with his long-standing friend and renown expert Fritz Heimann, who is a founder of Transparency International (TI) and still on TI’s Advisory Council, have just released their new book: “Confronting Corruption – Past Concerns, Present Challenges and Future Strategies.” The book looks back as far as the end of the Cold War when the first inroads were made in creating a global anti-corruption movement; it analyzes the movement’s depth in outreach and impact since then as it has led to the creation of anti-corruption initiatives, programs and treaties. From there the book draws a number of general and specific lessons and goes on to suggesting new action plans for the future.

New Perspectives on E-Government and Corruption

The Basel Institute on Governance is pleased to share its release of Working Paper 23: New Perspectives in E-Government and the Prevention of Corruption. This report reveals the results of an anonymous web survey exploring private sector use of e-government and effectiveness of such digital tools in preventing bribery and corruption.  The report concludes that e-government can reduce corruption but needs greater engagement by governments and companies alike in order to be more effective.  It offers recommendations to both sectors as well as a research agenda to better understand the link between e-government and corruption prevention.
