Study of the effect of the civic participation on reducing political corruption
One of the fundamental activities of the civil society is fighting corruption. An efficient and sustainable fight against corruption can be done only on the collaboration of three partners: government, private sector and civil society. Civil society's strategies against corruption must be diverse in responding to various causes and forms. In this paper, I examine political, economic and civil society factors reduce the levels of corruption in various nations using Corruption Perception Index (CPI) and Global Civil Society Index (GCSI) data. Corruption is typically lower in countries that have higher civil liberties than in countries that do not. Yet, increase of political rights does not affect reducing corruption. Economic development accompanied with increase of economic freedom reduces corruption. My research confirms that an additional point of GSCI and an additional percentage of adult population working in advocacy and expressive fields increase CPI. Yet, country size and education enrollment rates do not affect reducing corruption.
