Summary "Challenging Corruption in Asia provides an analytical framework to explore and attempt to answer these questions. Drawing on their experience as public policy advisors and implementers of anticorruption programs, the authors outline a six-step approach to developing effective anticorruption strategies tailored specifically to a country's pattern of corruption and conditions of governance. Case studies are written by researchers and policy advisors from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and South Korea. Together, they illustrate the impact of country-specific patterns of corruption and governance on anticorruption effectiveness. Emphasis is placed on choosing anticorruption instruments suited to the governance environment, on the key roles played by anticorruption champions, especially civil society organizations and the media, and on the need to make information on the extent and perceptions of corruption widely available."--BOOK JACKET
