The recently unveiled United States Strategy on Countering Corruption delineates an ambitious approach to address corruption through a series of well-defined measures. This initiative, detailed under five distinct pillars, seeks to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of existing government frameworks, both within and outside U.S borders.
To curb corruption and its deleterious effects, the U.S. Government will organize its efforts around five mutually reinforcing pillars of work:
1. Modernizing, coordinating, and resourcing U.S. Government efforts to fight corruption;
2. Curbing illicit finance;
3. Holding corrupt actors accountable;
4. Preserving and strengthening the multilateral anti-corruption architecture; and,
5. Improving diplomatic engagement and leveraging foreign assistance resources to advance policy goals.
