La corruption est une entrave au développement: elle entraîne la perte d'importantes ressources financières, érode la confiance de la population dans l'État et génère un sentiment d'impuissance et d'injustice, potentiellement source de conflits. Elle frappe de plein fouet les groupes de population pauvres et vulnérables qui n'ont pas les moyens de payer des pots-de-vin pour obtenir des prestations de service public. C’est pourquoi la DDC lutte résolument contre ce fléau. 

La lutte contre la corruption est une préoccupation centrale de la Suisse et un élément fondamental de la promotion de la bonne gouvernance. L'accent est mis sur une action gouvernementale transparente et responsable, mais aussi sur la sanction des infractions.

L'objectif est de s'assurer que l’utilisation des fonds publics soit efficace et efficiente pour le développement d'un pays et contribue à renforcer la confiance entre l'État et la population. Les institutions de l'État et les processus politiques ne doivent plus être victimes de la corruption. L’instauration de règles plus équitables peut contribuer à apaiser les tensions. 

Priorités  et approche

La DDC lutte contre les manifestations ordinaires de la corruption qui jalonnent la vie quotidienne de la population (p. ex. les pots-de-vin pour les soins médicaux), mais aussi contre la corruption à grande échelle qui porte sur des sommes d'argent importantes et implique de puissants représentants de la politique et des milieux économiques. Elle poursuit une double stratégie en soutenant la lutte contre la corruption par des programmes spécifiquement prévus à cet effet, et en intégrant cette problématique dans les activités menées dans d’autres domaines. La DDC s'attaque à ce phénomène sous toutes ses formes: de la corruption et des pots-de-vin aux ententes illicites sur les prix et à l'extorsion, en passant par la fraude, le détournement de fonds et le népotisme.

Tolérance zéro

Si la DDC est touchée par la corruption, les paiements sont généralement suspendus jusqu'à ce que la situation ait été clarifiée sur le plan légal. En outre, l’on s'efforcera toujours de récupérer les fonds détournés.

À qui s’adresser en cas de soupçons de corruption?

Le Compliance Office du DFAE est chargé de recevoir les signalements internes et externes sur les cas de corruption et d'abus commis dans le cadre des activités financées par la DDC.

Les cas suspects peuvent également être signalés au Contrôle fédéral des finances (CDF) sur la plateforme du Bureau de signalement des cas suspects.
