PACIS 2019 Proceedings


The prevalence of public sector corruption has been a major concern for successive governments and citizenry. In order to curb corruption, previous studies have focused on anti-corruption strategies adopted by governments in isolation, but few studies have focused on the interactions between anti-corruption strategies. Usingthe concept-centric approach, we systematically reviewed over 70 studies to explore the trends of government anti-corruption strategies.Three dominant themes of anti-corruption strategies and their associated concepts were identified. Themes include traditional, technological, transparency and accountability anti-corruption strategies.We leveraged the identified themes and their associated concepts to develop a conceptual model that could help explain the trends of anti-corruption strategies for curbing the public sector corruption.
