Corruption Perceptions Index – 2020 report launch

29 January 2021, 11.30am – 12.30pm 

Please join us for the launch of latest Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) – Transparency International’s landmark annual report that assesses public sector corruption around the world.

Join us for a lively discussion to learn more about global corruption hotspots, where Australia sits (have we improved, slid further or remain stagnant?), and what we can do to strengthen our democracy and prevent and stop corruption.

Our CEO Serena Lillywhite will deliver the results followed by a panel discussion.
