REPORT LAUNCH - How to tackle corruption in Afghanistan: New report 17 February

Landmark report evaluates institutions, laws and practices in the first-ever comprehensive assessment of Afghanistan’s capacity to fight corruption

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat

Corruption in Afghanistan is fueling ongoing war and undermining the effectiveness of billions of dollars of international aid. As the country faces critical threats from insurgents, curbing corruption is vital for the survival of the state.

Transparency International and national partner Integrity Watch Afghanistan with the support of UNDP Afghanistan have carried out an in-depth analysis of corruption risks in Afghanistan’s government, public and private sectors, media and civil society. National Integrity System Assessment: Afghanistan 2015 identifies the country’s key vulnerabilities and provides targeted recommendations for action. 

This is one of more than 100 National Integrity System Assessments conducted worldwide. Carried out in consultation with key actors across all sectors, the assessment provides a spring board for urgently-needed reform.

Political asylum for ex-presidents: an easy way to impunity?

This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration. Yet while we celebrate the universality of human rights, at times powerful individuals try to abuse the principles that underpin the international human rights framework. Two recent cases of two ex-presidents who have applied for political asylum to evade justice, and two countries who handled these requests in very different ways, highlight some of these abuses.
