Mali’s control of corruption is severely limited by its capacity to enforce rule of law. Some progress on administrative simplification and transparency which should be pursued further is thus offset by regress on the judiciary and law enforcement. Mali is however on top of its income group on many components, indicating that it needs financial support for its reforms: further administrative simplification, an increase in the effectiveness of the Courts, public expenditure and procurement transparency, police reform. The country struggles against political stability problems and has a very low number of e-citizens which cannot ensure the autonomous critical mass creating strong demand for reforms.
