About the guide
During the past years, there had been in Spain some high-profile corruption cases such as Púnica and Gürtel that prompted the arrest of high-ranking government officials. Spanish citizens have ranked corruption as one of the country´s most pressing concerns for the past years. Admittedly, however, Spain has taken meaningful steps to tackle corruption through a series of legislative reforms. This is reflected, for instance, in Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index of 2019, where Spain’s score, 62/100, had improved four points compared to that of 2018.
This article describes the most significant anti-corruption legislative reforms and measures enacted in Spain throughout the past decade. It then proceeds to identify the main areas for improvement, in accordance with recommendations formulated by the European Commission and the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO), the Council of Europe anti-corruption body.
