Rule of Law
Tackling National and International Corruption
The Institute works in partnership with industry, public and private organizations, academic institutions and several key anti-corruption organizations, subject matter experts and stakeholders from across Canada and around the world to build a platform that will aggregate and promote the tools, strategies and lessons learned to assist people and organizations to more effectively tackle corruption related issues.
Why is it important?
According to the World Bank, more than $1 trillion is paid in bribes each year, and corruption adds an additional 25% to the cost of procurement contracts in developing countries. Bribery and corruption not only undermine economic development, the rule of law and democratic institutions, but it also threatens the safety and security of those institutions and communities.
