CPI 2022 – A world urgently in need of action

Transparency International published today their annual Corruption Perceptions Index. Norway maintains its ranking as the fourth least corrupt country in the world. The index's first 5 countries are the following:

  1. Denmark
  2. Finland
  3. New Zealand
  4. Norway
  5. Singapore
  6. Sweden

Transparency International describes the development in the index as follows:

"The 2022 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) shows that most countries are failing to stop corruption."

In addition, the following is highlighted:

"The global average remains unchanged for over a decade at just 43 out of 100. More than two-thirds of countries score below 50, while 26 countries have fallen to their lowest scores yet. Despite concerted efforts and hard -won gains by some, 155 countries have made no significant progress against corruption or have declined since 2012."
