Systems to Eradicate Corruption in Emerging Democracies

Commitment by

Capri S. Cafaro

In 2005, Capri S. Cafaro commited to create a Task Force dedicated to addressing corruption in emerging democracies and develop solutions to eradicate this corruption by convening a collection of international experts from academic, non-profit, multinational, and governmental entities.
As of July 2006, the commitment maker decided that in order to make the biggest impact, it was necessary to focus on only one nation, thus, the Ukraine was selected as the focal point. Planning is ongoing for a trip to Ukraine to meet with key government officials and leading NGOs and the Task Force is currently developing and soliciting additional members and continues working toward the aim of strengthening Ukraine's young democracy, through wide-ranging domestic policy improvements, including election oversight, and corporate governance and transparency.
