Corruption is one of the most important problems that states are faced from past to the present. Corruption may be explained, generally as the use of powers that individuals have, for their own benefits or the benefits of third parts. States have to avoid minimize corruption since it is a very important problem. Because it is a problem causes many other social, economic and political problems. It also causes administrative, judiciary and ethical disengagements. There are different ways of solving this problem. One of these is to change the administrative approach. In the changing and developing world the classical public administration approach that is centralised, hierarchic and inelastic, is not enough for solving the problem of corruption and meeting the needs. Meets the necessary needs and therefore is effective in avoiding corruption in the changing and developing world is “governance”. The primary aim of this study is to argue the importance of governance in avoiding or minimizing corruption that has been an important problem from the past to the present. The study depends, as a method, to a deep library research by referring to the native and foreigner sources and legislations.
