Anti-Corruption in the Middle East
Corruption remains a concern for companies operating or planning to operate in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”). A recent Corruption Perceptions Index published by Transparency International, a non-governmental organization that scrutinizes global corruption, specified that five Arab countries are among the most corrupt countries on the index – namely Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Iraq and Syria.
In this e-chapter, you will learn about corruption in the MENA, mainly under two primary categories: political and defence. You will also learn about how to deal with corruption when conducting business in MENA, and the different tools you can use.
This e-chapter is the 10th chapter of the e-book “Designing an Anti-Corruption Compliance Program Management: A Guide for Canadian Businesses“. This e-chapter is written by Paul Greven, Chief Counsel, JLL Canada.
