Increasingly, people are turning to populist leaders who promise to break the cycle of corruption and privilege.Yet this is likely to exacerbate – rather than resolve – the tensions that fed the populist surge in the first place.

Read more Europe and Central Asia: There are no drastic changes in Europe and Central Asia on this year’s index, with only a few exceptions.

However, this does not mean that the region is immune from corruption.

This kind of systemic grand corruption violates human rights, prevents sustainable development and fuels social exclusion.

Higher-ranked countries tend to have higher degrees of press freedom, access to information about public expenditure, stronger standards of integrity for public officials, and independent judicial systems.

Top-scoring countries (yellow in the map below) are far outnumbered by orange and red countries where citizens face the tangible impact of corruption on a daily basis.

This year’s results highlight the connection between corruption and inequality, which feed off each other to create a vicious circle between corruption, unequal distribution of power in society, and unequal distribution of wealth.As part of International Women’s Day, Transparency International is launching the Women, Land and Corruption resource book. For the first time in its presidency of the G20, Argentina is hosting country representatives from across the globe to address the best ways of curtailing corruption and promoting integrity in state-owned enterprises (SOEs).This is a collection of unique articles and research findings that describe and analyse the prevalence of land corruption in Africa – and its disproportionate effect on women – presented together with innovative responses from organisations across the continent.

Cases like Petrobras and Odebrecht in Brazil or the saga of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine show how collusion between businesses and politicians siphons off billions of dollars in revenue from national economies, benefitting the few at the expense of the many.In too many countries, people are deprived of their most basic needs and go to bed hungry every night because of corruption, while the powerful and corrupt enjoy lavish lifestyles with impunity.” – José Ugaz, Chair of Transparency International The interplay of corruption and inequality also feeds populism.When traditional politicians fail to tackle corruption, people grow cynical.In Ghana, for example, voters voiced their dissatisfaction with the government's corruption record at the polls where, for the first time in Ghana's history, an incumbent president was voted out.Read more Due to errors in the 20 CPIs some content has been amended in the 2016 CPI web section.
