Since its debut in 2003, the Global Corruption Barometer has surveyed the experiences of everyday people confronting corruption around the world.
Through the TI Global Corruption Barometer, tens of thousands of people around the globe are asked about their views and experiences, making it the only worldwide public opinion survey on corruption.
In 2021, the first-ever Corruption Barometer was conducted in ten Pacific countries and territories. Over 6,000 citizens were interviewed in Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Samoa, Kiribati, Tonga, and the Federated States of Micronesia. The result is the largest, most detailed survey of corruption in the region – how people experience it, whether they feel corruption is on the rise, and what they think are the most urgent problems.
We are thrilled to be able to offer you an invitation to our briefing on this new report with:
• Mariam Matthews, Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead from Transparency International
• Deborah Stokes, TIA Board Member who has extensive experience in government and international relations in the Pacific
We will explore the findings of the report and how they are relevant to us here in Australia. What can the Australian government, Australian companies and concerned citizens do to contribute to fighting corruption in the Pacific?
Corruption is a transnational issue that needs transnational solutions.
