The Conclusion brings together the preceding chapters by explaining that the creation of international anti-corruption norms through non-binding instruments and informal institutions has the potential to diminish the normative legitimacy of these norms and institutions by privileging the interests of powerful States. At the same time, however, non-binding instruments carry significant advantages, including their capacity for change. The Conclusion also outlines avenues for future, empirical research. Future research could address why States have chosen to conclude non-binding anti-corruption instruments, the relationship between legitimacy and compliance, and the domestic implementation of anti-corruption instruments.
