The 2022 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) released Tuesday by Transparency International shows that corruption remains rampant in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, with many countries in the region hitting historic lows.
Armenia's CPI 2022 score has significantly decreased compared to the previous year and is 46, which is 3 points less than the score of the previous two years (49 points), on a scale from 0 (absolutely corrupt) to 100 (absolutely non-corrupt). The size of the standard error of the 2022 Armenia CPI measurement is equal to 2.47; in 2021, it was 3.76.
As noted in Transparency International's Eastern Europe and Central Asia regional analysis, after several years of progress, Armenia's CIP has dropped by three points in 2022, which is worrying. Although this decline is not statistically significant, it reflects a decline in the maintenance of checks and balances, the integrity of law enforcement agencies, ensuring the independence of the judiciary, and the protection of civil space.
