Abstract

The multifaceted nature of anti-corruption work demands a sophisticated account of ways in which organizations can collaborate. This article seeks to develop a framework for studying collaborations of anti-corruption work. Based on interviews and document analyses, it investigates Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Sweden, Finland, and Norway on their experiences. The article provides a discussion on types of collaboration based on five dimensions: the type of corruption; the kind of anti-corruption work; the purpose of collaboration; the nature of collaboration; and the actors of the collaboration. The article argues that going forward we should build anti-corruption networks by deliberately linking existing organizations through the idea of collaborative governance.

Keywords: Anti-corruption, collaboration, networks, anti-corruption institutions
