The project aimed to open a debate on corruption in the northern part of Cyprus, based on new scientific findings. The 2018 report is based on a telephone survey conducted by LIPA Consulting with 373 company executives as well as on a workshop with a group of experts.
The world's best-known reference source on corruption is the Corruption Perception Index, which is published annually by Transparency International in Berlin. The northern part of Cyprus is not included in this index; therefore, no data on corruption are available for the community in the north of the island. This project aims to establish a reference source for the perception of corruption in the northern part of Cyprus.
