Corruption is a form of dishonesty or criminal activity undertaken by a person or organization entrusted with a position of authority, often to acquire illicit benefit, or, abuse of entrusted power for one’s private gain. Corruption may include many activities including bribery and embezzlement, though it may also involve practices that are legal in many countries. The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) is an index that ranks countries by their perceived levels of public sector corruption, on a scale from 100 (very clean) to 0 (highly corrupt). The CPI generally defines corruption as the misuse of public power for private benefit.
