Asia Pacific youth: integrity in crisis

Filed under - Youth

Report published 27 May 2014
Transparency International trained youth volunteers to conduct a survey on youth integrity in four countries in the Asia Pacific region: Fiji, Indonesia, South Korea and Sri Lanka. The four countries have different levels of development and each has a distinct culture but they all share at least one dynamic: a large and growing percentage of the population consists of young people in the 15-30 age group. Transparency International national chapters in the Asia Pacific region recognise that, in order to engage their ever-growing populations of young people in the fight against corruption, they need to first better understand young people’s attitudes, experiences and interests. Transparency International designed the Youth Integrity Survey to understand what “integrity” means to young people in the region and to understand how they experience and react to corruption. We are convinced that the fact that young people interviewed other young people on their views about corruption makes the findings all the more reliable. Transparency International chapters in each of the four countries produced national reports based on their own Youth Integrity Survey results that provide more in-depth analysis at the country level.
