Here at Global Integrity’s home office, we have been busy putting the finishing touches on the Global Integrity Report: 2007, which will be published Jan 30, 2008. On tap is an all new Global Integrity Report website, a redesign of our org site and, of course, the official opening of the Commons.
Thank you to all who have contributed to the Report in the last year — your hard work will soon be out for all to see. We’ll keep you posted…
Richard, thanks for your comment. Each year we select countries with the intention of having as much diversity as possible — large and small, rich and poor, North and South.
We are limited by several factors. Each year we run as many countries as our budget can support. In addition, we only work where we have identified a local research team that meets our criteria of independence and experience.
Good to have a report like this, but to leave out places like U.K. and Australia, and have places like Vanuatu in does not make any sense.
