2022 Corruption Perceptions Index

Recently, the government ethics watchdog group Transparency International released its 2022 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), a survey of perceptions of public sector corruption in some 180 states. The perceptions come from experts and business leaders:

"This year’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) reveals that 124 countries have stagnant corruption levels, while the number of countries in decline is increasing. This has the most serious consequences, as global peace is deteriorating  and corruption is both a key cause and result of this."

"Corruption and conflict feed each other and threaten durable peace. On one hand, conflict creates a breeding ground for corruption. Political instability, increased pressure on resources and weakened oversight bodies create opportunities for crimes, such as bribery and embezzlement."

"Unsurprisingly, most countries at the bottom of the CPI are currently experiencing armed conflict or have recently done so."
The cleanest countries for the survey were Denmark, Finland and New Zealand. Canada came in 14th.
