Corruption in Luxembourg

Corruption in Luxembourg is examined on this page.

Extent

The level of corruption in Luxembourg is generally very low, and there is a strong legal framework for combating corruption. Anti-corruption laws are effectively implemented.[1] However, political corruption does surface. According to Transparency International Global Corruption Barometer 2013, 53% of the surveyed households consider political parties "corrupt" or "extremely corrupt", and 33% have the same opinion about Parliament. Moreover, a significant number of the surveyed households consider that the government's fight against corruption "ineffective" and corruption has increased over the past two years.[2]

Regarding business and corruption, companies do not consider corruption an obstacle for doing business in Luxembourg, according to World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Report 2013-2014.[3] However, several other sources indicate that the overlap between business and politics in Luxembourg gives opportunities for corruption, and there is no code of conduct focusing on corruption, conflict of interest and favouritism for procurement officials.[4][5]
