Corruption in Cape Verde 2007 - 2022
The causes of corruption lie in part in political and cultural reasons. Ineffective law enforcement may further promote it. It is striking that it is regularly lower in democratically governed countries (form of government in Cape Verde: Parliamentary republic). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In Cape Verde, per capita income is 3,190 USD annually, which is extremely low by global standards. The comparatively low cost of living indicates low prosperity and socioeconomic problems.
