Responding to EU plans, Transparency International Defence and Security Director Josie Stewart said:
Transparency International Defence and Security welcomes the new anti-corruption plans announced by the European Union this month.
Our most recent Government Defence Integrity index established that EU member states are exposed to an alarming risk of corruption in military operations.
This is due to a lack of anti-corruption measures sufficient for governing the sector.
Combating corruption is crucial to ensuring the rule of law, protecting human rights and promoting sustainable development.
