Anti-corruption models in the international scenario: the necessity for a global model in emergency situations?

The UNCAC requires that each State party ensure the existence of a body or bodies to prevent and to combat corruption. At the same time, there is not a uniform model available for creating such an anti-corruption body and, consequently, it becomes difficult to establish which model could be considered the most successful. Each country will develop an anti-corruption body which is fitted for its legal, social, and political circumstance. Therefore, under extreme conditions like a pandemic crisis, we may wonder about the stability and the integrity of the anti- corruption authorities. Since the corruption constitutes an obstacle to the global economic growth, when wide economic recovery programs are settled, the ineffectiveness of a national system could impact on all others countries’ anti- corruption policies. In the future, new common bodies and global anti- corruption programs are to be considered and to figured out.
