31 Jan: Global corruption index reveals Australia may have turned the corner but still lags on international scale
After ten years of democratic backsliding, Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) report has put Australia behind countries including New Zealand and Denmark scoring 75 points on the 100-point scale.
Transparency International Australia joins The Human Rights Law Centre and Griffith University’s Centre for Governance & Public Policy to call for a comprehensive reform process to ensure stronger protections for Australian whistleblower.
Transparency International Australia, the Human Rights Law Centre and Griffith University’s Centre for Governance & Public Policy welcomed the release of amendments to Australia’s federal public sector whistleblowing law.
