Mali faces considerable corruption risk across its defence institutions, with limited controls in operations, and little access to financial information. This lack of transparency hampers the effectiveness of external and internal audit bodies, which ultimately undermines the ability of the parliament to scrutinise the armed forces. However, Mali benefits from considerable public debate of defence matters, and strong sanctions for corrupt behaviour.
