This article examines the law, strategies and institutional frameworks established by Commonwealth Caribbean Governments to combat corruption. The article discusses the main themes in the anticorruption project, including anti-corruption clauses in public procurement contracts, the establishment of anticorruption agencies, the declaration of assets by public servants, the introduction of public sector codes of ethics, the corporate governance of public bodies, the role of Contractors-General, Contracts Commission and Central Tenders Board, and the trend to increased criminalization. All of these form part of an emerging anticorruption regime.
