The Extent of Corruption

An hour or so after I posted yesterday, the European Commission published a report on the extent of corruption within the European Union and its member states. The report looks at the provisions in each country to address the problem. It can be consulted as an EU wide report, or by each individual country.

The report identifies issues and specific measures to tackle corruption. It's worth looking at for a number of purposes -
  • to see the extent of corruption in particular States
  • to see the legal structure in place in each State
  • to identify the differing techniques used to address corruption
  • to see particular areas that individual States need to address
