Anti-Corruption Agencies: Exemplars or Failures of Public Policy


Anti-corruption agencies have proliferated in recent decades. In some countries they are part of the solution to rampant corruption, in others they are part of the problem. In some circumstances anti-corruption agencies are highly visible, yet their impact is hard to assess. One such problem of assessment relates to whether mere public exposure of corrupt practices by an anti-corruption body, without more, operates or serves as a deterrent. No two anti-corruption agencies are alike, not even in the six Australian states where variance exists in jurisdictional scope, size, focus and experience. The Singapore CPIB is different again. This talk discusses how they fit between being law enforcement bodies and integrity building organisations, and presents some data on the types of activities they undertake.
