Transparency International NZ invites you to a free webinar briefing on the Pacific Corruption Barometer, to be released on 16 November, 2021.
Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer is the only worldwide public opinion survey on corruption. Since its debut in 2003, the Barometer has gathered the views and experiences of tens of thousands of ordinary people around the world.
In 2021, the first-ever Corruption Barometer was conducted in ten Pacific countries and territories. Over 6,000 people were interviewed in Fiji, the Federated States of Micronesia, French Polynesia, Kiribati, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu. The result is the largest, most detailed survey of corruption in the region – how people experience it, whether they feel corruption is on the rise, and what they think are the most urgent problems. The report will be published on November 16th and will be publicly available on the Transparency International website: https://www.transparency.org/en/gcb.
This survey was undertaken through the Indo-Pacific Partnership for Strong, Transparent, Responsive & Open Networks for Good Governance (IPP-STRONGG) programme, which is funded by the New Zealand Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. https://www.transparency.org/en/projects/accountability-in-asia-pacific.
To hear from Pacific Islanders themselves on their views and experiences of corruption in their countries is both powerful and a credible tool to drive change. Once the results are released, Transparency International looks forward to working with our allies in civil society to engage governments and other key stakeholders on the findings, as evidence for the reforms needed at national and higher levels.
