AbstractThe object of study of this article is the anti-corruption policy of the Republic of Tatarstan. The aim of this study is to study the regulatory legal acts of the Republic of Tatarstan, forming the legal basis for anti-corruption policy of the Republic. The article states that the development of anti-corruption legislation of subjects of the Russian Federation has followed the path of advancing the formation of anti-corruption legislative framework of the federal level, which ultimately has given rise to certain problems of law enforcement nature. In the process of writing this article we have been using both the scientific methods of research (logical analysis and synthesis, functional and historical-legal methods) and special methods. The research methodology includes primarily the regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Tatarstan, as well as the papers of Russian scientists; the international experience on the issue has been also studied. As a result of the study the authors conclude that currently almost all regional legislation, including in the Republic of Tatarstan, is brought into line with the federal legislation in the field of anti-corruption; and it is necessary to carry out a permanent set of measures of the legal, socio-economic and educational nature for the effective implementation of the anti-corruption policy both in the regions and the federal center.

Fighting Corruption in East Asia : Solutions from the Private SectorBerenbeim, Ronald E.; Arvis, Jean-Francois (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2003-08)The critical need for private sector involvement in the fight against corruption is now an accepted fact, particularly in East Asia, where there is a buoyant private sector and where corruption has often been equated with cronyism. Cutting off corruption's supply side is a vital step in limiting the economic damage inflicted by corrupt practices. Despite the importance of private sector efforts in this regard, little attention has been paid to company anticorruption programs and to trying to learn from company experience. This book, which is based on research cosponsored by the World Bank and the Conference Board, provides detailed documentation of the efforts of Western and Asian companies to develop good standards of business conduct in their East Asian operations. It provides evidence that a common set of principles for resisting corruption can be established notwithstanding the rich cultural diversity and ownership structure of firms based in that region.
Changing Norms is Key to Fighting Everyday CorruptionPanth, Sabina (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2014-09-16)One of the biggest impediments to anticorruption efforts is the fact that corrupt practices have become so institutionalized in everyday society that citizens view them as fixed and incontestable. To break down such an entrenched mind-set, the public s ignorance of their rights, cynicism, fear of reprisal, and mentality of submission to the status quo must first be defeated. Perhaps most important, the efficacy challenge needs to be addressed. Citizens generally must believe that they can actually do something about corruption in order to summon the courage to act upon that belief. Based on CommGAP s interactions with the global anticorruption community as well as earlier research, we were able to collate 18 representative instances (case studies) from around the world, with real-life examples of citizens coming together to speak up against corruption and social norms vis-à-vis corruption or to change public services affected by corrupt practices. This report is a one-step-up analysis of the collated case studies, which is intended to shed light on practical approaches, tools, and techniques that have been successful in bringing citizens together to stand against the daunting phenomenon of corruption.
Philippines : Combating Corruption in the PhilippinesWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2000-05-03)This report collects and presents available information about corruption issues facing the Philippines, ongoing anticorruption efforts in and outside the government, and suggested elements for a national anticorruption strategy, drawing on global experience. The report proposes a nine-point approach to fighting corruption in the Philippines. 1) Reducing opportunities for corruption by policy reforms and deregulations; 2) reforming campaign finance; 3) increasing public oversight; 4) reforming budget processes; 5) improving meritocracy in the civil service; 6) targeting selected departments and agencies; 7) enhancing sanctions against corruption; 8) developing partnerships with the private sector; and 9) supporting judicial reform. These initiatives, which are already underway as isolated elements, must be unified under one concerted program, a strong leadership and management structure, and a strong partnership with the private sector, civil society, donors, the congress, and judiciary.
