Every year, Transparency International analyzes the perception of corruption around the world. The Index measures perception of corruption, not the actual level of corruption.
The 10-year history of Ukraine’s development in the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) shows some improvement. Although the indicators decreased in 2013, 2019, and 2021.
This year, Ukraine’s score has been formed based on 9 sources. And only two of them showed positive dynamics. We lost one point and have now 32 out of 100. Obviously, there is room for growth and development.
Transparency International Ukraine offers 5 specific steps that will help reduce the level of corruption in Ukraine and increase the confidence of citizens and businesses in the government in 2022.
- To complete competitions and select professional, independent, and honest heads of anti-corruption ecosystem bodies: the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office, the Asset Recovery and Management Agency, and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.
- To adopt the national Anti-Corruption Strategy and the program for its implementation.
- To reform constitutional justice, considering the conclusions provided by the Venice Commission.
- To ensure transparent accounting of public property and continue the course of privatization.
- To minimize the risks of adopting draft laws which exclude procurement from the scope of the Law of Ukraine “On Public Procurement.”
