Robert I. Rotberg, Editor Corruption, Global Security, and World Order Corruption, Global Security, and World Order Rotberg B r o o k i n g s / A A A & S / W P F Never before have world order and global security been threatened by so many destabilizing factors— from the collapse of macroeconomic stability to nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and tyranny. Corruption, Global Security, and World Order reveals corruption to be at the very center of these threats and proposes remedies such as positive leadership, enhanced transparency, tougher punishments, and enforceable sanctions. Although eliminating corruption is difficult, this book’s careful prescriptions can reduce and contain threats to global security.

Or is it that the spread of democracy, freer media, and new technologies allow us to be better informed about it? Has globalization altered the nature of corruption? Or is corruption the same as it has been since time immemorial? Are some societies more culturally prone to it than others? Or is corruption simply a function of incentives and institutions? What are the remedies? This important book sheds a much-needed light on these and other fundamental questions about corruption. A must-read for policymakers and analysts everywhere.” Moisés Naím, Editor in Chief of Foreign Policy magazine and author of Illicit: How Smugglers, Traffickers, and Copycats Are Hijacking the Global Economy ...
