International Anti-Corruption Day is meant to raise awareness of the corruption that exists in governments and societies all over the globe and at both national and local levels. It draws attention to the negative effects that corruption in all its forms has on human society and wellbeing.

With around a trillion dollars paid out in bribes annually worldwide and even more stolen by fraud and deceit, around five percent of global GDP is consumed. Plus, organised crime, terrorism, and other corrupt forces disrupt the rule of law and the peace of societies.

On International Anti-Corruption Day, there will be special media campaigns and other efforts to raise alarm over corrupt practices and to curb them.
