Burundi has very poor human development and control of corruption. It has the lowest access to Internet on the continent, resulting in a population largely unable to defend itself from abuse and claim access to basic rights. Well below its peers on judicial independence and freedom of the press, and with no fiscal transparency, it has registered some progress on administrative simplification, offset however by the other problems mentioned.
