International Anti-Corruption Day History
International Anti-Corruption Day seeks to raise awareness of corruption and its negative impact on societies. Corruption involves an abuse of entrusted power by dishonest or unethical conduct that leads to personal gain. No country in the world is entirely corruption-free, however some countries and regions are less affected than others. The Corruption Perceptions Index measures the perceived levels of public sector corruption around the world and states that over 68% of countries in the world have a serious corruption problem. These problems fuel devastation by promoting human trafficking, political instability, environmental destruction, and terrorism.
International Anti-Corruption Day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003 in an effort to highlight the negative impact of corruption on economic development and government stability. It is celebrated annually on December 9, a celebration that also showcases the role of the UN's Convention Against Corruption in preventing further corruption.
