Finland

Finland does very well on determinants of control of corruption, enjoying an exceptional 10 on judicial independence and a near 10 on freedom of the press despite being under-regulated on conflict of interest, financial disclosures and party funding compared to the EU average. However, recent scandals showed that Finnish companies, even public ones, seeking to obtain contracts overseas can engage in bribing and that enforcement of general compliance to anti-bribery conventions abroad and sanction of such behavior once disclosed is rather poor.
