The Impact of Corruption on Human Rights

18 May 2019

Through the State Capture Inquiry South Africans have been privy to shocking details of the depths of corruption in the country. State Capture Inquiry was a Commission which is set up to investigate allegations of state capture, corruption and fraud in the Public Sector including organs of state. The Human Rights Commission recently hosted a panel discussion under the theme "The Impact of Corruption on Human Rights". The objective of the discussion was to understand the level, pervasiveness and form of corruption at local government level; to reflect on the negative effects of corruption on the protection of human rights; and to explore synergies and possibilities for cooperation between different sectors of society in the fight against corruption.
