Abstract:Corruption has reached an endemic level in Cameroon. Using an institutional approach, the researcher presents a holistic description and a critical analysis of anti-corruption institutions and initiatives with an emphasis on their missions, goals, structures, activities, outcomes and limitations. The main purpose is to determine the structural, functional, systemic as well as behavioural patterns typical of the national anti-corruption process, to find out the reasons behind the failure of the system (a 'patchwork' according to the author), and outline the necessary anti-corruption reforms that can be undertaken. Though emphasis is laid on systemic aspects, and in-depth analysis of particular aspects of corruption or of the groups involved is overlooked, major patterns of the existing anti-corruption (and corruption) system and policies are uncovered, and suggestions for the reform of ongoing policies are made.
