Recognizing Anticorruption Champions Around the World
Corruption is an international problem that requires an international solution. According to a 2018 United Nations study, $1 trillion is paid in bribes every year, while an estimated $2.6 trillion are stolen annually through corruption. This is an amount equivalent to more than five percent of the global gross domestic product (GDP). In developing countries, funds lost to corruption are estimated at 10 times the amount of official development assistance.
Mandela Washington Fellows and Alumni, like 2018 Alumnus Ibrahima Kalil Gueye of Guinea, are changing that. Learn more about his work and why he was selected as an Anticorruption Champion by the U.S. Department of State in this DipNote Post.
