Codes of Conduct in Defence Ministries and Armed Forces

Corruption risk in defence and security establishments is a key concern for defence officials and senior military officers, as corruption wastes scarce resources, reduces operational effectiveness and reduces public trust in the armed forces and security services. Part of the solution to these risks is clear guidance on the behaviour expected of senior officers and officials, and strong application of those standards of behaviour. 

The report presents the conclusions of an analysis of the written codes of conduct and related documents from 12 participating nations: Argentina, Australia, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Kenya, Lithuania, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine.

La France a épaulé l'initiative des pays du G5 Sahel, qui regroupe cinq pays de la région (Mauritanie, Mali, Burkina Faso, Tchad et Niger) de créer une force militaire conjointe aux confins du Mali, du Burkina Faso et du Niger, une zone très instable devenue un foyer pour les groupes extrémistes.
