Punishing corruption is a vital component of any effective anti-corruption effor

Invest in institutions and policy – sustainable improvement in how a government delivers services is only possible if the people in these institutions endorse sensible rules and practices that allow for change while making the best use of tested traditions and legacies – imported models often do not work. Align anti-corruption measures with market, behavioral, and social forces. Adopting integrity standards is a smart business decision, especially for companies interested in doing business with the World Bank Group and other development partners Keep citizens engaged on corruption at local, national, international and global levels – in line with the scale and scope of corruption. Make use of the architecture that has been developed and the platforms that exist for engagement.

Explanation

Corruption is not only about bribes: People especially the poor get hurt when resources are wasted. That’s why it is so important to understand the different kinds of corruption to develop smart responses. Power of the people: Create pathways that give citizens relevant tools to engage and participate in their governments – identify priorities, problems and find solutions.Cut the red tape: Bring together formal and informal processes (this means working with the government as well as non-governmental groups) to change behavior and monitor progress.Use the power of technology to build dynamic and continuous exchanges between key stakeholders: government, citizens, business, civil society groups, media, academia etc.

A particularity of the European integration project, kickstarted in the 1950s is that, unlike any other project before this, at its core does not have a shared political or ethnic identity, but rather shared values. While the union of the USA was started out of a shared ethnic and political history, the European Union started as a union of values. European countries decided to get close together on the basis of the same values we all share. With time, the European model differentiated itself from the American one: universal healthcare, gun control, accessible education also at the university level are only some of the differences. These were all initiated by the deep belief in social equality and other social values that constituted the basis of the social-democratic movement around Europe. Nowadays these are so deeply rooted in our system and culture that no political party would attempt to undermine them. Nevertheless the basis that united the European countries is now being lost and being forgotten. This is contributing to create a crisis in the union. Only going back to our uniting values will help the EU to overcome this moment of crisis. Only if we decide to build even more the United Social Europe will we be able to prosper again and overcome this dire period. The United Social Europe can only start after the Social-Democratic movement will restate and truly coordinate itself at the European level rather than the National one. It is more and more necessary to show a united face and to state again what are the values of the movement that, due to the turbulent political climate, are being lost of sight. Starting the renewed social-democratic movement that at its core does not have only social justice and equality, but also transparency and Europe will be the basis for a new spring of social-democracy and for the renewal of the United Social Europe project that, for too long, has been decaying. It is time to bring clarity on Social-Democracy and what being a European Social-Democrat is, it is time for transparency and clarity, fundamental more than ever to have a bright future.
