Kuwait corruption body has a mountain to climb

Kuwait’s new Anti-Corruption Authority (ACA) has its work cut out. Finally established in mid-2013 after years of rhetoric, the ACA (sometimes also referred to as the Public Authority for Anti-Corruption, or PAAC) has made some progress. A draft law is expected to be completed in February, and ACA members are being trained overseas. But a lack of dedicated resources – and ongoing political upheaval – make its success far from assured.In the past few years, Kuwait has continued to slide down the rankings of Transparency International’s corruption perception index, which measures how corrupt public sectors are seen to be.
