Combatting impunity in grand corruption: the case for an International Anti-Corruption Court

Public corruption is endemic at the highest levels of government in many nations. Such ‘grand corruption’ is costly, closely correlated with the most serious abuses of human rights, and threatens the stability of many nations and the world. Grand corruption depends on a culture of impunity that exists because of the unwillingness of leaders to permit the honest and able investigation of their friends, families, and, indeed, themselves. International efforts to combat grand corruption have been inadequate and ineffective.
