As government ministers, development professionals and civil society gather at the United Nations in New York for the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, 9 – 19 July 2019, Transparency International will release Global Corruption Barometer – Africa, the largest, most detailed survey of citizen views on corruption and experiences of bribery in Africa.

Released on African Anti-Corruption Day, the report includes recommendations on how the international community can reduce the negative impact of corruption in Africa, particularly on the poorest and youngest members of society who are disproportionately affected.

Global Corruption Barometer – Africa captures people’s experiences and perceptions of corruption in 35 countries and territories. Transparency International partnered with Afrobarometer, who spoke to 47,000 citizens between September 2016 and September 2018 about their perceptions of corruption and their direct experiences of bribery.  

The countries surveyed are: Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Cote d'Ivoire, DRC, Eswatini, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The survey includes questions on how citizens perceive corruption in government and public institutions and whether citizens pay bribes for essential services, like water, electricity and education.  

The new survey follows the previous edition of the Global Corruption Barometer for Africa, last published in 2015.

Advanced copies are available upon request.

IPC 2019: Analyse mondiale

L’Indice de Perception de la Corruption 2019 révèle qu’un nombre impressionnant de pays ne montrent que peu ou pas de signes d’amélioration dans la lutte contre la corruption. Notre analyse suggère également que la réduction de l’influence de l’argent en politique et la promotion de processus de prise de décision inclusifs sont essentielles pour lutter contre la corruption.
