ANTICORRP has identified seven success stories in good governance that have led to low levels of corruption in those countries. Can such successes be emulated or lessons learned from them? Are virtuous circles accidents of history – or something that can be applied elsewhere? To what extent does human agency play a critical role? What makes these reforms sustainable? These are the questions that this policy report tackles. It offers two synthetic tables, one summarizing the cases, and another the broader lessons learned for policy reforms.
