Abstract:This paper analyses best practices for managing corruption. It focuses on four case studies where the results of measures for fighting corruption have proved to be the most durable: in Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, and the United Kingdom. In all four cases there was no masterplan and reform evolved over time. Ongoing successes reinforced the momentum of change, and these successes became institutionalised in government processes and the culture of participative governance. The article also highlights some trends in detecting corruption and rewarding whistle-blowers. The purpose of the article is to illustrate some similarities of Namibian cases of corruption with incidents of corruption in the four countries mentioned. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
