header1 Issues of concern

  • Corruption persists as a serious problem, and the remaining political will to fight it is eroding. Powerful business figures exert influence over politics through financial support for political parties, and lobby for the appointment of loyalists to key institutional positions.
  • Threats and violence by nonstate actors regularly disrupt or prevent meetings by groups advocating for LGBT+ and women’s rights.
  • Recent reform initiatives aimed at addressing the country’s corrupt and politicized courts have stalled or fallen short of expectations.
