Denmark on the spotlight for being the least corrupt country in the world
Last 3rd of December 2013, Transparency International published its famous corruption index. Among 177 countries, Denmark appeared as the least corrupt country in Europe and the world. Read more about the index and how the Scandinavian kingdom manages to remain top of the class.
Transparency International (TI), a Berlin-based NGO born in the early 1990’s, is the organization that creates the famous index on corruption. Its chairman and founder, Peter Eigen, a former World Bank employee, has described the prominence of the CPI (Corruption Perceptions Index) as “the best available method of compiling comparative data about corruption”.
Even though the CPI is not comparable across countries or over time, it is commonly used among academics, scholars, students, the media, NGOs, politicians (…) to study and state the performance of a country from year to year.
