This chapter presents a comparative perspective of corruption and its consequences for governance in Asia. It discusses the proliferation of corruption and the models for combating corruption in Asia. These include anti-corruption laws with no independent agency, anti-corruption laws with many agencies, and anti-corruption laws with an independent agency. This chapter argues that the third model which involves the creation of an independent institutional machinery to fight against corruption has proven to be most effective. It also explores the impact of corruption on cultural values and identifies the challenges to promoting human rights in Asia.

Keywords:   corruption, governance, Asia, anti-corruption laws, independent agency, cultural values
