This work presents the peer-reviewed and updated conference papers presented at the 13th Winelands Conference of the School for Public Leadership of the University of Stellenbosch. The publication is the result of an international orientation on the themes of good governance and corruption, now and in the coming years. While good and bad are opposites, the same goes for good governance and corruption. They do not go together in one organisation and good governance is the means to remedy the other. Corruption hollows out and destroys all forms of good governance at all levels of government. The only sustainable weapon against corruption is in the establishment of good governance and complementary management control within organisations. The conference focused on the issues of corruption, combating and preventing it and the future of good governance, especially in Southern Africa and (Western) Europe.
