This publication presents A Framework for Commonwealth Principles on Promoting Good Governance and Combating Corruption, which was endorsed by Heads of Government at their Summit in Durban in 1999 as the basis for pursuing concerted strategies based on ‘zero tolerance’ for all types of corruption at national and global levels.

Developed by an independent Commonwealth Expert Group, it underscores the Commonwealth's commitment to promoting good governance and combating corruption. The publication also includes the full report of the Expert Group, which helps to clarify the causes and consequences of poor governance and corruption. It identifies the elements of national strategies that countries can adopt to combat corruption effectively, and breaks new ground by examining the global dimensions of corruption and identifying gaps in current international efforts and initiatives to fight it.
