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:
