Listen to an expert panel discussion on corruption and security governance across Africa. This discussion took place on 25 January at King’s College London and coincided with the launch of the Africa results for Transparency International’s Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index.
Transparency International warns of ongoing corruption risks contributing to instability
All states in the Middle East and North Africa are at high risk of corruption posing a continuing threat to security and stability in the region according to a new Government Defence Index from Transparency International.
Sixteen of the seventeen states assessed in the index receive either E or F grades, representing either a “very high” or “critical” risk of defence corruption. Only Tunisia performs better, although is still classed as “high risk”.
In the anti-corruption fight, quick wins rarely come around. It can take years to help people understand how corruption can damage their business and their country. That’s why the story of Tatra Trucks came as a pleasant surprise.
