Iceland is the most corrupt of the Nordic countries according to Transparency International’s latest report. The Corruption Perceptions Index measures how corrupt countries’ public sector is perceived to be, “based on expert opinion”.
This year’s index ranks 175 countries and territories. As the Nordic countries come out on top of the Index, along with New Zealand, being the most corrupt of those means that the public sector in Iceland is still seen as relatively wholesome, in a global context. In 12th place, it sits comfortably between Germany and the United Kingdom.
