Assessing the state of corruption and national anti-corruption strategy in Somalia

This report presents the findings of the assessment of the state of corruption in Somalia and the proposed Draft National Anticorruption Strategy to fight and prevent corruption. The goal of the study was to produce an evidence base concerning corruption risks and prevention and mitigation measures to the introduction of anti-corruption measures to fight corruption. The study uses secondary data (qualitative and quantitative) and measures generated by various sources including the TI, Mo Ibrahim Foundations, World Bank, AfDB and several independent institutions involved in the fight against corruption, mismanagement and related issues, such as  governance, transparency and accountability. All the surveyed studies and evidence reviewed suggest that Somalia is at the bottom and scoring lowest in the perception index. If one agrees with these results, then it is correct to classify Somalia as the most corrupt country. Most important, it is to interrogate whether the various indicators consider all factors affecting corruption and fully reflect the reality on the ground, including the country historical perspective.
