Corruption is a global phenomenon that impedes democratic procedures, the advancement of modernity, and social progress. Due to the wide variety of economic conditions and socio-political cultures found, the Asia–Pacific region is particularly vulnerable to the destructive effects of corruption. This research intends to discover how the international legal framework can influence anti-corruption initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and significance of various international legislative instruments, initiatives, and cooperation mechanisms that can contribute to fighting corruption in the region. In addition, the research will investigate the challenges and limitations associated with making use of international legal instruments to combat corruption in the Asia-Pacific area. There are a number of factors that must be considered, including political will, cultural norms, economic growth, and the power of existing institutions. The ultimate objective of the study is to provide a more in-depth understanding of the role that international legal frameworks play in the fight against corruption and to assist in the development of plans that are both more robust and specific in order to combat corruption in the Asia Pacific region.
