Good Governance and Anti-Corruption in Tunisia



Why do we need to address the issues of governance and corruption in Tunisia? 

  • Corruption is one of the most corrosive issues of our times. It wastes public resources, widens economic and social inequalities, breeds discontent and political polarisation and reduces trust in institutions.
    See: 2017 OECD Recommendation on Public Integrity
  • Corruption is an important issue in Tunisia and for Tunisians*:
    • Corruption is perceived as the 3rd main problem in the country after unemployment and the management of the economy;
    • 67% of Tunisians believe corruption has increased over the past year
    • But 59% of Tunisians believe they can make a difference.
