For the first time, the CPI will offer a comprehensive look at a decade of corruption, revealing which countries have improved, regressed or stagnated over the last 10 years. Additional analysis will highlight the connection between corruption, democracy and human rights – from the lowest-scoring countries through to advanced economies.
