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.

Gender Assessment of the 2021 Electoral Process in Puntland

On October 25, 2021, Puntland became the first federal member state in Somalia to hold democratic elections to district councils. “One person one vote” elections were conducted in three “early districts” of Eyl, Ufeyn and Qardho.
