The causes of corruption are rooted in a country's political and legal development, its social history, bureaucratic traditions, economic conditions and policies. Generally, the weaker the institutions of governance are, the more prevalent is corruption. In other words, a country that tolerates corruption is either weak or corrupt itself.

As long as governments are unwilling to enforce anti-corruption laws as well as harshly punish those who are involved in corruption, regardless of their public or private position, poverty and conflicts around the world will continue to rise!
