In this paper, the author discusses four broad challenges in anti-corruption work. Key to the fight against corruption is the enhancement and participation of civil society. Participatory approaches, however, also require more rigorous integration with concrete reforms in systems, institutions and incentives. The foundation for a successful and comprehensive anti-corruption strategy is provided by in-depth and detailed empirical work. An argument is presented encouraging the significant expansion of the overall empirical approach to controlling corruption and improving governance, and using the insights gained by the diagnostics to achieve concrete results in the fight against corruption.
