    collaboration with ECA region (Wbank), in context
    of Anticorruption Report.

Some Policy Implications
  • Anti-corruption efforts should focused more on
    state capture as the root of governance problems
  • Need to factor in that the roots of state capture
    result from partial civil liberties, lack of
    transparency and insecurity of property rights
  • Need to address link between corporate (including
    FDI) and national-level governance
  • Political and Economic competition limit state
    capture
  • deconcentration of economic activity
  • civil society, collective action and political
    accountability
