This academic study examines how corruption is controlled in six Asian countries, namely Hong Kong, India, Mongolia, the Philippines, Singapore and South Korea. These countries illustrate between them three patterns of corruption control in Asian countries. Pattern 1 is demonstrated by Mongolia, which has anti-corruption laws but no independent agency. Pattern 2 is illustrated by India and the Philippines as they have many anti-corruption laws and anti-corruption agencies. Pattern 3 refers to the implementation of anti-corruption legislation by an independent anti-corruption agency and is best exemplified by Singapore and Hong Kong. South Korea has moved from Pattern 1 to Pattern 3 with the formation of the Korean Independent Commission Against Corruption in January 2002.
