Anticorruption Initiatives

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs is committed to strengthening the international fight against corruption. In recent years, INL has pursued a mix of diplomatic and programmatic efforts to attain four primary international anticorruption goals. These four goals are:

  • Uniting Governments Under Common Commitments. By recognizing and helping to shape international norms to counter corruption, the U.S. Government (USG) opens the door to better bilateral and multilateral cooperation on traditionally local fronts.
  • Helping Governments Meet or Exceed Those Commitments. Where pockets of political will exist, the USG can assist governments to take effective action against corruption.
  • Mobilizing Popular Will and Private Sector Action. Popular will is the best expediter of political will against corruption.
  • Leading by Example. The USG has been a leader in the fight against corruption by promoting integrity within its own country and making its actions an example for the world.
