Improving the Justice System and Fighting Corruption to Become Competitive Once Again

The inefficiency linked to the justice system and the pervasiveness of corruption have a major impact on Italy’s economy. Judicial reform and fighting corruption in Italy can make a crucial contribution towards improving the country’s capacity and potential for growth.

Improving the Justice System and Fighting Corruption to Become Competitive Once Again

Reforming the justice system and fighting corruption are two of the main levers for the entire country and its economy to become competitive once again, and are priority areas of reform for Italy

For this reason, Ambrosetti Club has continued its analysis of this issue in its study entitled Improving the Justice System and Fighting Corruption: Two Priority areas for Creating a Pro-Business Environment in Italy. The study was presented during the 42nd “Intelligence on the World, Europe and Italy” Forum.

The inefficiency linked to the justice system and the pervasiveness of corruption have a major impact on Italy’s economy and markedly reduce domestic and foreign investment, not only in industrial investment and infrastructure, but also in terms of investment in human capital, by hampering the increase in size of companies, fostering the “brain drain” and deterring the arrival of skilled immigration.

The problematic nature of the justice system and corruption have a negative impact on companies and markets, as well as the ability of businessmen to operate within a climate that is transparent and merit-based, and to free the innovative potential of the country. Where the law is not observed, there is more incentive to “look out for yourself”, or even for private citizens and businesses to break the law.

From this standpoint, judicial reform and fighting corruption in Italy can make a crucial contribution towards improving the country’s capacity and potential for growth.

The goals of the study were to:

  • Assess the measures involving justice * and corruption introduced by government and institutions over the past year
  • Monitor the progress in the adoption and implementation of the proposals formulated in 2015
  • Update the analysis of the performance of the justice system and corruption in Italy, including from an international standpoint
  • Identify new areas for action that are aimed at improving the performance of the justice system and fighting corruption.
