Combatting Grand Corruption Internationally

"Grand corruption"--the abuse of public office by a nation's leaders--is widespread. It is costly and closely correlated with violations of human rights. The victims of grand corruption range from the poor and powerless to the major international businesses which are disadvantaged because of their dedication to operating ethically. Indignation at corruption is destabilizing many countries and creating grave dangers to international peace and security. Despite laws, treaties, and the energetic efforts of civil society, grand corruption remains endemic in many nations.
