Broad national anti-corruption strategies have so far been a popular response by governments to wide-spread corruption in many countries. The results have, however, been mixed. This U4 Brief argues that States Parties to the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) should have a strategic vision when they "develop and implement or maintain effective, coordinated anti-corruption policies" as Article 5 stipulates. The authors also argue that anti-corruption policies may be conducted in many different ways, and they are not limited to anti-corruption strategies alone.
