It’s International Anti-Corruption Day

TiMEDIA RELEASE | Transparency International

BERLIN - Today is International Anti-Corruption Day. Around the world anti-corruption activists are highlighting that no country is immune to the effects of corruption.

Most countries are making too little progress in ending corruption, as we found in our Corruption Perceptions Index 2017. 

Similarly, we’ve found that despite lofty promises the G20 is moving too slowly on implementing its anti-corruption commitments, and OECD members are not actively enforcing laws against bribing abroad.

Even some United Nations agencies, like the International Maritime Organization, are not doing enough to combat corruption.

As UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, “The World Economic Forum estimates that the cost of corruption is at least $2.6 trillion — or 5% of global gross domestic product.

“Corruption begets more corruption and fosters a corrosive culture of impunity.”

This might sound all doom and gloom, but there is hope.

Ordinary citizens all over the world are coming together to fight back against corruption and they are making a real difference.
