Transparency Azerbaijan, a national chapter of Transparency International in Azerbaijan, presents the Corruption Perceptions Index  for 2023

The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) prepared by Transparency International   ranks countries based on the degree of perception of corruption in the public sector. The Index is prepared on the basis of various surveys and assessments conducted by a number of influential international institutions.   The CPI is an assessment of perceptions of corruption in the public sector.

François Valérian, Chair of Transparency International, said: “Corruption will continue to thrive until justice systems can punish wrongdoing and keep governments in check. When justice is bought or politically interfered with, it is the people who suffer. Leaders should fully invest in and guarantee the independence of institutions that uphold the law and tackle corruption. It is time to end impunity for corruption.”

The CPI2023 global average remains unchanged at 43 for the twelfth year in a row, with more than two-thirds of countries scoring below 50. This indicates serious corruption problems.

The rating is prepared according to a rating scale of 0-100 points, where 100 points stands for  very clean, and 0 points indicates a very high level of perceived corruption.

In 2023, Azerbaijan ranks 154th out of 180 countries  surveyed  in the CPI with 23 points. According to the results of 2022, Azerbaijan has advanced 3 steps up.

Over the past 6 years, Azerbaijan’s indicators have been as follows: 

Year CPI point Place in global ranking   Number of countries surveyed  in the CPI
2023 23 154 180
2022 23 157 180

2020 30 129 180
2019 30 126 180
2018 25 152 180

 A total of 13 different reports were used in the preparation of the overall CPI. These reports assess the position of countries on a number of political, economic and social criteria that affect the effectiveness of their anti-corruption policiesy. Information about Azerbaijan was prepared on the basis of 6 different sources. A complete list of sources can be found in the «Questions and Answers» document attached hereto.

PANDORA PAPERS: 10 COUNTRIES THAT URGENTLY NEED TO ACT

Posted by: | Posted on: Ноябрь 10, 2021

The release of the Pandora Papers last Sunday has provided an opportunity to take a comprehensive look at the underworld of the offshore industry.

The Pandora Papers is a large-scale investigative project by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and media outlets in 117 countries. Journalists have analysed the documents leaked from 14 corporate service providers – all based in jurisdictions with high levels of financial secrecy.

The confidential documents reportedly show high-level officials, oligarchs and billionaires using shell companies to move wealth offshore and to anonymously buy real estate or luxury goods.

Globally, the Pandora Papers must create a new momentum for ending the decades-long abuse of corporate secrecy and pushing hesitant decision-makers into action. These investigations come at a time when the world is moving closer to a new global standard on corporate transparency. The Financial Action Task Force members should use this crucial opportunity to require public, central registers of company owners in all countries.

Simultaneously, national governments need to get their own affairs in order.

First, power players

Over 300 politicians from 90 countries – including 35 former or current government leaders – are alleged to have evaded scrutiny and shielded themselves with anonymity. Individuals who should be taking decisive steps for tackling the flows of dirty money have themselves been abusing the system’s opacity. In the months to come, they will have a lot of explaining to do – to the public and to the authorities.
