Report launch: Would young people in Asia Pacific rather be honest or rich?
Issued by Transparency International Secretariat
The fight against corruption in Asia Pacific cannot succeed without the support of the region’s vast youth population. On 27 May, Transparency International will launch a new report showing how corruption affects young people and what integrity means to them.
Asia Pacific Youth: Integrity in Crisis asks young people aged from 15 to 30 from Fiji, Indonesia, South Korea and Sri Lanka if they have experienced corruption in the past 12 months and if they would engage in corruption for personal gain. It also asks if young people would be prepared to take action against corruption.
The report will give recommendations for action from both governments and education institutions to shape an environment in which integrity can be the guiding principle for young people’s behaviour.
The report will be launched at a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in New Delhi on Tuesday 27 May at 11:00 AM India Standard Time (IST), 06.30 AM London time (BST). It will also be available at www.transparency.org.
Please contact us for an embargoed copy of the report or to set up an interview in advance.
