Corruption Report by Transparency International

Transparency International has published a comprehensive report on corruption in Afghanistan. Afghanistan ranked 172 out of 175 countries in the 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index. Despite billions of dollars allocated for military training, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reports that just 29 per cent of Afghan Army units have the level of training required to allow them to operate independently with advisors (and many units no longer have advisors attached). The report, entitled Corruption: Lessons from the international mission in Afghanistan, was published in February 2015. The report identifies nine reasons the international community was slow to develop a response to corruption in Afghanistan. It proposes a framework for policy makers to address corruption issues in Afghanistan and in future interventions. There is no doubt that the Resolute Support Advisors working in Essential Function 3 TAO found this report interesting. The report is an Adobe Acrobat PDF, 72 pages long, and 2 MBs big. It can be read online or downloaded at the link below.
