UN Report: Corruption in Afghanistan

Published January 2010

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime released this January 2010 report "based on interviews with 7,600 people in 12 provincial capitals and more than 1,600 villages around Afghanistan. It records the real experiences (rather than just perceptions) of urban as well as rural residents, men and women, between autumn 2008 and autumn 2009."

Among the report's findings: "...an overwhelming 59 per cent of Afghans view public dishonesty as a bigger concern than insecurity (54 per cent) and unemployment (52 per cent)."
