Corruption is both a symptom and a consequence of today’s fractured world. Widely recognized as an obstacle to stability, growth, equity and the competitiveness of economies, corruption is a strategic risk for every business leader and an inescapable concern for government. The Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) Future of Trust and Integrity project highlights the correlation between higher levels of corruption and lower levels of trust.
The white paper identifies three key dimensions – institutional, behavioural and technological – of trust and integrity and their corresponding catalysts for effecting positive change in sociopolitical systems. Drawing on the Latin American region and, more specifically, Argentina, the project highlights trends, solutions and real-world cases where business, government and civil society have raised standards in the fight against corruption, and rebuilt trust and integrity to ensure sustainable change.
