The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will host a panel discussion on the topic “Fighting corruption by authorities – What worked and what went wrong.” at the 16th IACC in Putrajaya, Malaysia.

This workshop is designed to bring together current and former anti-corruption practitioners from Asian region and an international expert on corruption to share not only their experiences and observations in regards to time- tested anti-corruption strategies, laws and regulations that have been implemented or put in place in their organizations as well as some concerns or pitfalls which should be reviewed and avoided by all anti-corruption authorities.


Efforts in fighting corruption by Anti-Corruption Authorities (ACAs) vary from one country to another. Some are more successful than others and some have failed to live up to expectations. Why this so? Are there areas where ACAs need to revolutionize their practices? Have those ACAs which have been successful in the fight against corruption done enough? If so, why are there still corruption? Apart from factors like political will, strong legal frame work, social society engagements or cooperation from people, what else does an ACA need to do in order to revolutionize current strategies and measures put in place domestically and internationally?

The aim of this panel discussion is to provide an evaluation of strategies and limitations in fighting corruption by authorities.


With this invaluable wealth of knowledge and insights imparted at the Conference by the anti-corruption fighters, the workshop hopes to achive the following objectives:

  • To identify effective domestic and international measures and plans in meeting challenges

  • To unfold success stories and the problems faced by ACAs and learn from each other’s strengths and weaknesses in order to improve our current and also future strategies

  • To indentify whether the claim that fighting corruption by authorities are particularly inclusive and participatory valid? Or can powerful actors with well-organized political interests impose their narrow political priorities?

  • To identify who are the stakeholders in ACAs. Who is excluded?

  • To identify by how and by whom should ACAs be evaluated/monitored

  • To identify how can we ensure the credibility of initiatives of ACAs

  • To identify what are specific promises and pitfalls of initiatives of ACAs in the area of business integrity
