As UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, stated
“Corruption is criminal, immoral and the ultimate betrayal of public trust. It is even more damaging in times of crisis – as the world is experiencing now with the COVID-19 pandemic. The response to the virus is creating new opportunities to exploit weak oversight and inadequate transparency, diverting funds away from people in their hour of greatest need.”

The research reveals the connection between people’s quality of life and the Rule of Law. An interactive infographic shows that less corruption leads to an increase of GDP per capita, homicide decrease, child mortality decrease, and increase of Average Life Expectancy.
