Corruption has existed over millennia as one of the worst and the most widespread forms of behavior which is incompatible with the ideals of justice democracy and human rights The close examination of the relationship between corruption and human rights reveals that corruption directly indirectly and remotely violates human rights In spite of the fact that these relationships exist between corruption and human rights the existing regional and international anti corruption conventions did not give due consideration for their relationship However on the contrary guarantying human rights in general and ensuring non discrimination and participation in particular are useful preventive tools for corruption Hence the problem of corruption and the violation of human rights need an integral approach It is with this view that the human right to corruption free service is put forward to give meaning to the integral approach The right to corruption free service is both a means for the realization of other human rights and for prevention of corruption The book is especially useful for anti corruption and human rights activists and anyone else who advances the cause of humanity
