Rather, there must be a legislative and institutional system based on a constitutional basis in accomplishing these tasks, as the phenomenon of corruption poses a great challenge in many societies because of its damages represented in increasing the cost of Public service, mismanagement, dissipation of its fairness, and wasting the principle of equal opportunities, which negatively affects the values of social justice and the political aspect as well as human rights.To combat this phenomenon, the United Nations Convention against Financial and Administrative Corruption was concluded at the international level in 2003, whereby this agreement represents a comprehensive strategy to combat corruption, as it depends on legislative and administrative mechanisms, and it works on a mechanism to keep up with implementation and works on a type of judicial cooperation between the states parties The fact that fighting corruption is no longer a national matter, but international efforts must also be required and also requires strong political will backed by popular will, which includes building a counter system that promotes the values and principles of integrity, transparency and accountability through a comprehensive preventive strategy in which all parties in Iraqi society participate, as it is a necessity to move from Postponing serious work in combating corruption within an open framework within which all official and popular efforts and civil society institutions come together, and broad powers have been granted in order to achieve their goals, the most dangerous of which are criminal characteristics that relate to conducting investigations into crimes of government corruption.
