FREEDOM AND SAFETY

 

Transparency International published its latest Corruption Perceptions Index, a global ranking of fairness around the world.

 

The ranking of 180 countries is based on the level of public sector corruption in 2017, according to businesspeople, journalists, and civic organisations.

 

Higher-ranked countries tend to have more press freedom, access to information about public spending, and independent judicial systems.

 

Countries are given a score out of 100, with those scoring highly being the least corrupt.
