Ivanov Introduction This chapter begins by tracing the origins of the global anti-corruption agenda, which emerged in the mid-1990s from the US government’s perception of foreign corruption as a commercial and security threat. The World Bank and the IMF repackaged their policy advice, prescribing deregulation to reduce opportunities for officials to collect bribes.

However, in the Nicaraguan case in Chapter 10, as in the Georgian case in Chapter 8, the geopolitical agenda clearly overrides the anti-corruption and governance agendas, serving to unline that it is donor preference which is behind the forgrounding and/or de-emphasis of anti-corruption within a wider foreign policy remit.
