UN in your language

What? On the 17th of May 2011, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) will release a new public sector bribery survey for the western Balkans. Surveying over 28,000 people in 2010, the European Commission-funded report, “Corruption in the western Balkans: Bribery as Experienced by the Population”, the survey reports on corruption as reported by citizens in the region, ranking a high third in the list of most pressing issues, after unemployment and poverty but well ahead of security and education. Highlighting how corruption affects everyday life, the report details the extent and levels of bribes paid for basic services.
