4 Ways to Help End Corruption

At the Stolen Asset Recovery Network, we provide swift action on a global scale to combat corruption. Corruption is an issue across the globe. We’ve written in the past about
the effects of corruption, the warning signs of corruption, and how you can report it. To pull the picture back even further: how can you end corruption altogether?

Ending corruption on a global scale relies on an intentional concerted effort to push back against it. Here are 4 ways that individuals, companies, and governments can help end corruption completely:

Increase Transparency

Transparency and access to information are deadly to corruption. Promoting transparency at all levels of businesses and governments ensures that good people stay in charge and everyone faces consequences for their poor actions. No one should have anything to fear with transparency. Look at the positive effects that access to information and freedom of press have resulted in over the years.

Improve Financial Management

A lot of corruption slips through the cracks because financial management and oversight fall short of their intended purpose. Financial management should stay vigilant on the lookout for unusual behavior and be open to reporting it when it is noticed. Being transparent about things like budgets and earnings help promote global responsibility.

Empower Citizens

One of the biggest issues facing the fight against corruption is that average citizens feel powerless to stop it. As people watch corporations take over the world and governments be consumed with petty in-fighting, it can be easy to feel like there is nothing you can do to improve things. Empowering citizens to see the ways they can get involved with their local government and businesses just brings more sets of watchful eyes on the lookout for corruption.

End Impunity

Impunity at any level is antithetical to justice. As long as those in power or in good bargaining positions are empowered with impunity, corruption will never end. Creating a culture where crime and corruption always results in consequences, regardless of who commits it, leads to a world where the temptation for corruption is combated on a large scale.
