New case study on addressing corruption in Romania

Partners Foundation for Local Development (FPDL) in Romania led a systemic process to address the roots of corruption in local government. This case study details the process they used and the results of their intervention.

FPDL's strategic and participatory approach to anti-corruption in the town of Craiova has been recognized with a United Nations Public Service Award for “Preventing and combating corruption in the public service.”

“you can catch far more flies with honey, in a far more effective way, than going after them one by one."

In this case study, the authors demonstrate the effectiveness of working from inside local government to reduce corruption, rather than pressuring the system from the outside. When courageous leaders and public managers want to address their organizations' vulnerability to corruption, they can be supported by skilled facilitators, anti-corruption practitioners and competent experts using a collaborative approach.
