The Global Anti-Corruption Pledge Tracker is a civil-society assessment of how seventeen governments have performed on the delivery of commitments made at the 2016 Anti-Corruption Summit. The Tracker is led by Transparency International UK (TI-UK), but is a collaborative effort with other Transparency International chapters or country partners in each relevant country.

In its categorisation of progress on each commitment, the tracker also takes the strength of the original commitment into consideration by detailing how concrete, new and ambitious the original commitment was in 2016.

The full methodology for the Tracker can be found here. All assessments are correct as of autumn 2018, and will be updated again in spring 2019.

The Global Anti-Corruption Pledge Tracker is not an index, as we do not rank or score governments based on their implementation performance. Comparing progress on commitments across countries is discouraged, as the pledges made at the 2016 Summit varied in content and quality. For detail and additional notes on the strength of each commitment, please download the full dataset.

If you are aware of any outdated information captured on the Global Anti-Corruption Pledge Tracker, please contact TI-UK or the relevant TI chapter with publicly available evidence of more accurate information. This data will be updated again in spring 2019, and we’re always working to ensure that the assessments we publish are up-to-date and based on evidence.

SCOPE

The Global Anti-Corruption Pledge Tracker focuses on commitments made by seventeen governments, across six themes:

  1. Asset Recovery
  2. Beneficial Ownership
  3. Law Enforcement
  4. Open Data
  5. Public Procurement
  6. Whistleblower and Civil Society Space Protection

METHODOLOGY

Working with colleagues in TI chapters in 17 countries, we followed this methodology:

  1. Took time to UNDERSTAND what the government’s commitments are referring to;
  2. DECIDED how to measure progress for each commitment;
  3. REMOVED any commitments which were deemed too vague to track;
  4. IDENTIFIED the government department responsible for delivering on each commitment;
  5. INFORMED the responsible department that their progress will be monitored;
  6. If possible, RECORDED an expected timeline for delivering each commitment;
  7. INVITED government to share evidence of their progress;
  8. RESEARCHED evidence of progress on each commitment if government has not provided evidence;
  9. CATEGORISED each commitment as one of the following options below, according to the definitions provided;
  10. INPUTTED the evidence and categorisation
COMPLETE This commitment has an end date and there is evidence that it has been completed
ONGOING This commitment has no defined end date and there is evidence that activity has started
UNDERWAY This commitment has an end date and there is evidence that activity has started
NO DATA There is no data on how this commitment is progressing
INACTIVE There is evidence that no activity has taken place on this commitment
OVERDUE There is evidence that this commitment has gone past the deadline*
DROPPED There is evidence that this commitment has been dropped by the government

*The original deadline given. If no deadline given at the Summit, the first deadline offered by the government should be the one followed.
