Problem

According to TI’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2013, Armenia shares 94-101 positions among 177 countries, indicating stagnation of corruption across years. Furthermore, TI’s Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) 2012-2013 highlights that 82% of the respondents consider corruption as a serious or very serious problem in Armenia and 53% consider the actions taken by the government as being ineffective or very ineffective. Strikingly, only 37% of the respondents do agree or strongly agree that ordinary people make difference in the fight against corruption and only 43% - the smallest portion among the surveyed countries - are willing to get involved in any related activities.

The main reasons of corruption include the convergence of politics and business, lack of independent and strong institutions, ineffective management of conflict of interest situations, legal loopholes, poor law enforcement and high public tolerance of corruption. The key institutions responsible for good governance are the legislature, executive, judiciary, public sector, law enforcement, electoral management body, ombudsman, audit institution, anticorruption agencies, political parties, media, civil society and business.
