Corruption take place everywhere: Denmark is no longer the least corrupt country in the world

A podcast on anti-corruption in the Nordic region – what should companies consider.

At the beginning of this year, Transparency Internationals released their corruption index for 2017. The index showed that Denmark, for the first time since 2012, is no longer the country that ranks highest. New Zealand is the highest ranked with scores of 89. Denmark and several other Nordic countries have revealed that unfortunately corruption is a global phenomenon and a risk for all corporations.

In this context, the Faculty of Law, held the conference Nordic Fight against Corruption: Challenges, Tools and Results. The conference dealt with the challenges faced by Nordic corporations when carrying out business in and outside the Nordic region. The conference welcomed a number of experts from around the world to discuss different kind of tools and strategies for fighting corruption in Denmark and in the Nordic region.

After the conference, Alexandra Andhov, assistant professor at the Faculty of Law, talked with Kristin Berglund, Senior Anti-Corruption Expert for the Nordic region about what companies should do and how we can approach corruption in the Nordic region. Both had presented at the conference.
