Report Assessing the Sociocultural, Economic and Political Cost of Corruption in Zimbabwe 2000-2015
The Annual State of Corruption Report (ASCR) is a comprehensive sector specific study by Transparency International Zimbabwe (TI-Z). The main objective of the ASCR is to detail and provide qualitative and quantitative insights into specific sectors that are pivotal to the transitional process of Zimbabwe. To date TI-Z has produced three successful Annual State of Corruption reports in the following sectors:
- Mining sector 2012
- Land sector 2013
- State Owned Enterprises 2014
For the year 2015, TI-Z is proposing to do a nuanced analysis on the political, economic and cosial cost of corruption in Zimbabwe over the past 15 years (2000-2015). While various studies and media articles have attempted to report on the scourge of corruption from different perspective, there still remains a need to objectively reconcile all these narratives and, more importantly, examine how corruption has impacted on key human and governance sectors. This will aid current efforts by TI-Z, the government and other like-minded organizations to come up with an inward looking and informative National Anti-Corruption strategy. Such a strategy needs baseline data and an informed position on how corruption is not only entrenched but is impacting on the fundamental institutions that are politics, economics, social relations, and service delivery.
The assessment will be guided by the following objectives
- To assess and document the political, economic and social structural elements that have fuelled corruption in Zimbabwe
- To assess and quantify how corruption has impacted negatively on the political, economic, social and cultural sectors
- To propose timely, feasible and attainable recommendations on curbing corruption.
