Global fight Against Corruption

Drop file here to send
Africa is widely considered among the world’s most corrupt places, a factor seen as contributing to the stunted development and impoverishment of many African states. Of the ten countries considered most corrupt in the world, six are in sub-Saharan.
The social & political consequences of corruption rob nations of resources & drive inequality,resentment & radicalization, #Corruption cheats the continent’s governments of some $50bn (£38bn) annually & hinders #sustainable economies & safe societies.
Corruption is the most neglected human rights violation of our time. It fuels injustice, inequality and depravation, and is a major catalyst for migration and terrorism. International agreements define various corrupt practices as a crime, but not corruption itself. Instead, it is passively defined as a technical flaw in governance, its horrors disguised in legalese. Corruption’s victims get little mention.
Corruption creates and increases poverty and exclusion. While corrupt individuals with political power enjoy a lavish life, millions of Africans are deprived of their basic needs like food, health, education, housing, access to clean water and sanitation.
Acknowledging the negative human rights impact of corruption makes it imperative for African states to provide better protection to their citizens. Africans have the most at stake in getting anti-corruption efforts to work, because corruption disproportionately affects poor people.
A more rights-based approach to corruption is a good strategy for both African and European governments. It would mean greater political stability, and provide an environment for sustained social and economic development. This, in turn, would have a positive effect on the drivers of conflict, terrorism and migration.
Many countries in the region have seen threats and violence against civil society, making it dangerous to operate and difficult to hold governments to account. Governments must create safe conditions for civil society to undertake anti-corruption work, and governments need to guarantee the operational and physical freedom of such organizations.
In order to effectively prevent corruption in the african region, greater efforts need to be made to protect whistleblowers from retribution, improve the effectiveness of reporting channels, and raise public awareness about how and where they can report corruption.
A strong civil society is crucial throughout the region in the fight against corruption because they subject governments on pressure to improve their transparency & accountability to its citizens,Anti-corruption campaigns should not be seen as a political witch-hunt by leaders in power but rather a credible effort by independent bodies answerable to the legislative institutions & not the executive, Western governments too have the power to force greater transparency, particularly in countries that receive significant levels of foreign aid #EndCorruption #BetterGovernance #InclusiveandEquitable
