Economic Corruption - Global Rankings for 2011

Economic Corruption - Global Rankings for 2011

The scale and depth of corruption - defined by Transparency International as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain varies greatly across the world. No country can ever score a perfect score for eliminating corruption from their economy but the annual rankings of perceived corruption provide a useful way of identifying the best and the worst performers (most of whom are plagued by extreme poverty, war and failed government). Systemic corruption damages human lives and can undermine almost everything that international organisations seek to do to promote development and poverty reduction.
Several countries have made sizeable progress in tackling and reducing endemic corruption and are thus better placed to attract sustainable inward investment as part of their development strategies.
