DIGITAL BANGLADESH- CAN IT PREVENT CORRUPTION
The present fever to launch an extensive digitalization program is sweeping the Bangladesh political, business, and elitist minds. In the face of an overarching outlook of sustainable development the Bangladesh digitalization program runs into some grave questions. The paper points out that ethics as a strongly endogenous force in development is indispensable to keep in view the simultaneity of attaining growth and social justice. These targets are variously manifested in different sectors and quarters of the beneficiaries of growth and development. In this perspective, various comparative works in the literature are invoked

As Sirleaf mentioned that it is not only a governmental problem (although the majority of it is in the government) it is a problem that affects just everyone.
One action that has helped immensely with not only the current corruption in the government, but the possibility of future corruption comes from the creation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Liberia which was created by president-elect Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

aspect which has an effect on judicial independence is the need for professional ethics and the existence of judicial corruption. Randall Peerenboom argues that the judiciary in China is ‘plagued’ by corruption. Indeed, the idea that the main purpose of laws is to reinforce state capacity and satisfy political ends is deeply entrenched in the Chinese political theory. This often appears to outweigh the standards of justice and equality. Such observations have further led to the members of the judicial system being referred to as ‘political-legal cadres’.

India’s situation is best explained by an ancient proverb, “A fish rots from the head down.” When the head is putrid, the body politic cannot be healthy….

value system that shapes the ways in which individuals view political competition, policy goals, and the roles of the citizen within the polity. According to the theories, the individualist sees the political system as a marketplace established for utilitarian purposes. As such, the role of government should be limited, as personal freedom is revered as the primary attribute of society. The role of the individual in politics is characterized by what the player will gain from participation. The quest for self-interest makes politics a dirty business. For this reason, corruption in government and politics is generally expected and accepted.
