Антикоррупционная политика Республики Корея: история становления и современность
Korea is a country with strict anticorruption legislation. However, this cannot the only guarantee for the eradication of various types of corruption. Analyzing retrospectively the reasons for its functioning and its combating in the Republic of Korea, there is a traditional system of social organization that in many ways provokes corruption. In different periods the presidents of Korea engaged in “personnel cleansing” in the civil service and conducted a strict anti-corruption policy. However, each of the heads of Korea was a victim of corruption scandals, although South Korean society is one of the most respectable and decent societies in the world. The use of harsh measures in this area makes it possible to identify the facts of participation in the corruption schemes of former and current assistants to the head of state, deputies from the ruling and opposition parties, representatives of business structures. As a result, the anti-corruption measures of the Korean government have a positive impact on the country's international image.
