Abstract :

How do anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) become valued within a polity? What challenges must they overcome? What conditions account for their success and failure? What contributions can corruption prevention make to good governance? And in what areas might it have little or no effect on the quality of governance?

With these questions in mind, the book examines the experience of Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), widely regarded as one of the few successful examples of an ACA. It is grounded in an analysis of ICAC documents and surveys, our own survey of social attitudes towards corruption in Hong Kong, and interviews with officials.
