Police corruption in india | Photographer: Serge Bouvet | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Police is one of the scariest examples of corruption. India does not have any special laws to prevent corruption. Like every other system it has loopholes which can be taken advantage of. Also, the public perception regarding corruption is rather limited.

Unless people respond strongly by rejecting corrupt people in elections, one should not expect much from the system. I am surprised to see that people in India do not look down upon those who become wealthy by adopting corrupt means.

We seem to be an over-forgiving nation. Being a federal country we have many rungs of political parties which increase the number of power points we have. Therefore, the number of public servants too is much higher than in a country with a unitary system.

As discussed in this blog, I recently helped launch a report on Papua New Guinean perceptions of corruption. The report focused on findings from a household study undertaken in 2010/11.

Grant Walton has been doing some really interesting work in PNG to work out exactly what corruption means to people and how that information can be used to enhance anti-corruption activities

Denmark and New Zealand are tied at the top (least corrupt) of the 2013 Corruption Perception Index, according to a report released by Transparency International. At the bottom of the list (most corrupt) are Afghanistan, North Korea and Somalia. Today’s graphic shows the most and least corrupt countries based on their perceived levels of public sector corruption.

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Spurred by events in the Arab world and high profile examples like the Indian Ipaidabribe.com, the role of social media to fight corruption and, more broadly, improve governance has been in the spotlight recently (see e.g. the Accountability 2.0 blog http://bit.ly/nXUecB). Perhaps the most comprehensive reports we have come across in this area are from the Transparency and Accountability Initiative. Their global mapping report on technology for transparency and the latest piece on the state of the art in transparency, accountability and citizen participation are particularly informative. Ditto for the online tracking tool on technologies for civic engagement. [...]

In order to start to address these gaps, our regional office is about to embark on a study that aims to provide a country by country overview/inventory of initiatives related to use of social media for anticorruption as well as some more in-depth analysis of selected examples. Here’s a very initial inventory (http://bit.ly/oWoVMk), courtesy of my colleague, Piotr Drozd. Eventually, we hope to move beyond the analysis and, in true web 2.0 fashion, “learn by doing” through actual small scale pilots.

Are you interested in this topic? Do you have any pointers or suggestions that could inform our research and make it more relevant to your needs? Do you know of any case studies we could include our research? We’d love to hear from you. Original post: http://bit.ly/qrwV30
