The phenomenon of corruption is manifested in most countries of the world, including Iraq, It is the result of revolutions and uprisings witnessed in a number of Arab countries in what was called the Arab spring.
Corruption has many causes and manifestations as well as different effects. That being said, it can be addressed through multiple methods. Primarily, by laying the foundations for good governance, the use of legal mechanisms, including prevention and remedies, and focus on the role of the judiciary. The success of the latter depends largely on the provision of a number of guarantees namely ensuring its independence from both the legislative and executive branches, protecting it from corruption, and providing an integrated legal system. In addition to the enforcement of its judgments and decisions against the corrupt, the collaborative effort of the rest of the authorities of the State in support to the judiciary would be critical in this area. These issues and other subjects deriving theoretical and practical details are the core of this study, which aims at strengthening the role of the Iraqi judiciary in the fight against this phenomenon
