Huge corruption challenge for sub-Saharan Africa - latest Transparency International index
The 2022 report from Transparency International, ranking the world’s states according to their perceived levels of corruption, has a few surprises. This latest index from TI lists Denmark as the least corrupt country in the world – but several states in Western Europe have scored markedly worse than before. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Seychelles once again tops the score-sheet for the region, while Somalia scores the lowest not just in the region, but in the world.
Perhaps the most telling take-aways from this year’s Transparency International (TI) index, ranking the world’s countries according to their corruption levels, come right at the start of the report: corruption and conflict are inextricably linked, says the report; and countries with strong and well-functioning democratic governments are often the least corrupt.
