Building coalitions between civil society and government is an important step in fighting corruption. By opening channels through which civil society and government stakeholders can demand greater accountability from each other, this approach can generate and sustain a citizen-government dynamic that will substantially buttress reforms. Incorporating diagnostic tools and broad-based workshops into the coalition-building process, moreover, helps to identify the opportunities and priorities for reform efforts. While WBI is working with many countries around the world, this paper draws principally from the programs in Paraguay and Bolivia to illustrate WBI's work in fighting corruption.
