Quah, Jon S.T. 2011. Curbing Corruption in Asian Countries: An Impossible Dream? Singapore: Institute of Southeast Asian Studies.

Quah, Jon S.T. (ed.). 2013. Different Paths to Curbing Corruption Lessons from Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong SAR of China, New Zealand and Singapore. Singapore: Emerald Group Publishing Limited.


Corruption is a serious problem in many countries around the world, according to Transparency International's 2012 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) and the World Bank's 2011 Control of Corruption governance indicator. However, some countries/jurisdictions like New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Singapore and Hong Kong SAR of China, have consistently performed better on these two indicators than other countries. This book seeks to explain why these five countries/jurisdictions have succeeded in combating corruption; and identify the lessons which other countries can learn from these successful experiences.
