Corruption was a major problem in Mali before the crisis of 2012-2013, and it has remained a major problem since. So I was interested to see a piece on Malijet entitled “Ten Proposals for Effectively Fighting Corruption in Mali” (French). The entire piece is worth reading, but here a few highlights:
#2: “Creating a High Court for Fighting Corruption”
#4: “Putting in Place a System for Denouncing Corruption”
#7: “Declaration of Assets of Elected Officials and State Functionaries”
#10: “Stopping Financial Aid [Packages] and Re-Orienting Economic Co-Development Toward Communities”
Some of the proposals may be controversial, some even naive – with #4, such systems can sometimes be more show than substance – but the list as a whole is, I think, quite well thought out.
