HOW DOES YOUR COUNTRY MEASURE UP?
Two years into the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s CPI reveals that corruption levels have stagnated worldwide. Despite commitments on paper, 131 countries have made no significant progress against corruption over the last decade and this year 27 countries are at historic lows in their CPI score.1 Meanwhile, human rights and democracy across the world are under assault.
The CPI scores 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption, according to experts and business people. The CPI uses a scale from 0 to 100.
100 is very clean and 0 is highly corrupt. 2/3 of countries score below 50/100! The average score Is 43/100.
The results of this year’s CPI show that countries with well protected civil and political liberties generally control corruption better. The fundamental freedoms of association and expression are crucial in the fight for a world free of corruption.
While corruption takes vastly different forms from country to country, this year’s scores reveal that all parts of the globe are at a standstill when it comes to fighting public sector corruption.
