Corruption in Australia

Corruption in Australia is comparatively uncommon. Australia is ranked one of the least corrupt countries in the world, according to Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index, which measures corruption in the public sector.[1]

The phenomenon has also been studied by the Australian National University, who produced a report called Perceptions of Corruption and Ethical Conduct (2012), which concluded: "there is a widespread perception that corruption in Australia has increased" and that "the media, trade unions and political parties were seen as Australia's most corrupt institutions.[2]

Australia has a strong record of global, regional and domestic action to prevent and expose corrupt activity.These include the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group, APEC Anti-Corruption and Transparency Working Group and the United Nations Convention against Corruption Working Groups.[3]

Australia is consistently ranked as one of the least corrupt nations in the world in the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index.
