Global Corruption Barometer – Middle East and North Africa 2019

In recent months, millions of people across North Africa and the Middle East have taken to the streets in protest against their governments. There are strong parallels with the Arab revolutions that a decade ago toppled some of the most repressive and corrupt regimes in the region. Whether Tunisia in 2010 or Lebanon and Sudan in 2019, people have been voicing their anger at the corruption they see and experience in their daily lives: from the highest levels of government to accessing basic public services.
