Corruptie blijft op hetzelfde peil

By Jordi Bou

January 25, 2022 - Most countries have made little to no progress in bringing down corruption levels over the past decade, according to an annual survey by anti-graft watchdog Transparency International.

The report ranks countries on a scale from a “highly corrupt” 0 to a “very clean” 100. Denmark, New Zealand and Finland tied for first place with 88 points each; the first two were unchanged, while Finland gained three points. Somalia (13), Syria (13) and South Sudan (11) remain at the bottom.

Since 2012, 23 countries have significantly declined – including advanced economies such as Australia (73), Canada (74) and the United States (67), the latter dropping out of the top 25 countries on the Index for the first time.

25 countries have significantly improved their scores, including Estonia (74), Seychelles (70) and Armenia (49).
