Corruption – a threat to development
Corruption constitutes a serious threat to social and economic development, and it particularly affects people living in poverty. In poor societies and fragile states, corruption may lead to the deterioration of basic security and public services. Fighting corruption therefore means using state funding properly and contributing to combatting poverty, societal security and development – in Sweden as well as abroad.
