Corruption pollutes the markets, politics and development. More than 20 billion dollars is estimated to be stolen by corrupt officials every year. Impunity and control over the territory render criminals more reliable.
Honest people and in particular entrepreneurs may find it more difficult to resist to the criminal pressures when the rule of law is undermined, and criminals are more potent than the state. They will be less likely to denounce pressures, violence and extortion if they do not consider public authorities capable of protecting them and enforce the law.
Organised crime enjoys impunity when a government cannot perform its functions; strong institutional capacity is, therefore, crucial to effectively address the phenomenon.
