We are pleased to see States embracing the business community in corruption prevention activities in Africa. At a recent anti-corruption conference in Rabat, a new declaration emphasised the importance of the "involvement of all stakeholders, with a shared vision and an action based on collective mobilisation…”. This language underlies the Collective Action approach that we at the Basel Institute have long promoted to increase standards of integrity and fair business around the world.

A high-level meeting of heads of anti-corruption agencies in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) last month was a chance to take stock of member countries’ efforts to tackle corruption.

The meeting allowed for a reflection on many ongoing activities and discussions around Collective Action in the region this year. It was the perfect opportunity to reflect on how to galvanise joint efforts against the region’s biggest scourge.

This publication forms part of the ‘Enabling Business Networks in ASEAN to Combat Corruption’ Project implemented by the ASEAN CSR Network (ACN) and funded by the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office (UK FCO). It provides an overview and analysis of anti-corruption Collective Action case studies in the ASEAN region. 



The world is facing a pivotal moment of urgent global challenges for development. It is critical for the World Bank to remain vigilant against corruption in the projects it finances. This report documents how the offices of the World Bank’s sanctions system worked in FY23 to help ensure that the Banks’s funds are used in a transparent and accountable manner and only for their intended purposes. It particularly highlights the importance of collective action efforts to overcome corruption. 

This manual has been developed to help compliance officers in Croatian and Serbian State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) to introduce or strengthen their company’s anti-corruption programmes. It is designed as a practical, easy-to-reference tool offering a variety of practices that an SOE could consider implementing, such as Collective Action, which can be a highly effective way for SOEs to fight corruption and foster integrity.

Corruption in state-owned enterprises has a unique ability to undermine governments, markets and citizens’ well-being. While international standards promote integrity in the state-owned sector, their implementation remains a challenge. This handbook describes an innovative peer-learning programme – Compliance Without Borders – and its contributions to strengthening anti-corruption compliance in state-owned enterprises. It explains the benefits of galvanising the private sector to work with their state-owned counterparts in preventing corruption and levelling the playing field.

“Fighting corruption has to be a collective effort. No single stakeholder can do it alone. Government cannot do it alone, or the public administration. If only citizens are left to fight corruption, they will struggle. And the private sector likewise.”
– Gretta Fenner, Managing Director, Basel Institute on Governance
