Abstract:

This White House and the World Policy Brief presents key facts and recommendations drawn from Chapter Five of The White House and the World: A Global Development Agenda for the Next U.S. President.

The United States has played a leadership role in the fight against global corruption, and there are many reasons to be hopeful about this effort. Nonetheless, corruption continues to seriously impede development efforts around the world, and the critical task of combating it will require both long-term commitment and strong support from the next U.S. administration.
