Since 2001 the Global Corruption Report (GCR) has offered an annual assessment of the state of corruption around the world. The GCR brings together leading experts and practitioners to analyse current issues, new challenges and solutions in the area of corruption.
In its thematic section the report presents an in-depth analysis of one key corruption issue. In 2008, the GCR turned its attention to corruption in the water sector. Previous editions analysed judicial corruption (2006) and the health sector (2007). In its country section the Report compiles country accounts of corruption trends and institutional reforms for more than 30 countries in all world regions. In its research section the report showcases the latest empirical insights and methodological advances in diagnosing and assessing corruption.
The GCR is produced annually by an editorial team working in the Policy and Research Department of TI’s Secretariat in Berlin, supported by external editors, peer reviewers, fact-checkers, translators and an international editorial advisory panel of experts.
