THE IMPACT OF INSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE ON COMBATING FINANCIAL CORRUPTION AND THE QUALITY OF BANKING SERVICES
The research aims to study, analyze, and evaluate the role of governance mechanisms in light of banking regulations in reducing financial and administrative corruption in public banks. The research question investigates whether the implementation of governance principles leads to improving the quality of banking services and combating financial and administrative corruption, thereby enhancing the financial performance of banks? The importance of this research lies in the utilization of governance principles to improve the quality of banking services and combat financial and administrative corruption within these banks. These principles have a direct and indirect impact on these banks. The study focuses on the governmental banks Al-Rasheed and Al-Rafidhain, with branches across Iraq. The study sample consists of 390 financial managers within these banks. Statistical methods such as mean, standard deviation, and tests of influence and correlation were employed using the SPSS statistical software. The research concludes that the adoption of transparency and disclosure principles in public banks is weak due to the lack of available data and information regarding the operational aspects of these banks.
