OECD and Transparency International Publish Directory of Anti-Corruption Programmes in Central & Eastern Europe

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat

Transparency International (TI) and the OECD have produced a directory of national and international anti-corruption programmes operating in Central and Eastern Europe. The directory, which is the first of its kind on the Internet, is user-friendly and will be fully searchable in future. It is conceived as a unique reference guide for those involved in the struggle against corruption, including donors, governments, NGOs, journalists, businesses, trade unions, academics and researchers. It is also intended to facilitate the exchange of information on and experiences of anti-corruption work, and to improve donor co-ordination.

Thirteen countries in Central and Eastern Europe are covered in the forty-page directory: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. It includes programmes which are sponsored by multilateral organisations and operating within these countries.

TI is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to increasing government accountability and curbing both international and national corruption. It aims to bring together people of integrity in civil society, business and government to build coalitions in order to bring about systemic reforms. Among TI’s awareness-raising activities is publication of the annual "Corruption Perceptions Index", which receives wide press and media coverage. This index ranks 85 countries around the world and draws on numerous surveys reflecting both experts’ and the general public’s perception of the extent of corruption in the respective countries.

The Anti-Corruption Directory is an updated version of a working document researched in 1997. It is based upon various research and interviews. This version has been compiled by Donald Bowser, a Programme Officer at the TI Secretariat in Berlin, Germany. The project has been carried out in collaboration with SIGMA, a joint initiative of the OECD and the European Union, principally financed by the EU’s Phare Programme.

Legally sanctioned lying: A moment of truth for the Czech Republic?

A court in Prague struck a blow to civil society in the Czech Republic on Friday, ruling in favour of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš in a libel suit brought by TI Czech Republic.

Next week governments can take a step to close down secrecy jurisdictions. Will they?

National financial regulators attending the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary in Paris 16 – 21 February have the opportunity to significantly reduce money laundering, corruption and terror financing. They must not squander the opportunity.

Why don’t the victims of bribery share in the record-breaking Airbus settlement?

Last Friday, French, UK and US authorities announced that Airbus would pay record penalties for foreign bribery. Notably absent in the agreements are any plans to share the penalty payment with the countries where the company was paying bribes.

Nadie es perfecto

Los países con las puntuaciones más altas en el IPC, como Dinamarca, Suiza e Islandia, no son inmunes a la corrupción. Si bien el IPC muestra que los sectores públicos en estos países están entre los menos corruptos del mundo, la corrupción existe, especialmente en casos de lavado de dinero y otras formas de corrupción en el sector privado.

Переполох на верху

Страны с самым высоким рейтингом по ИВК, такие как Дания, Швейцария и Исландия, не защищены от коррупции. Хотя ИВК показывает, что государственный сектор в этих странах является одним из самых чистых в мире, коррупция все еще существует, особенно в случаях отмывания денег и другой коррупции в частном секторе.

Problèmes au sommet

Les pays les mieux classés sur l’IPC comme le Danemark, la Suisse et l’Islande ne sont pas à l’abri de la corruption. Bien que l’IPC montre que les secteurs publics de ces pays sont parmi les moins corrompus au monde, la corruption existe toujours, en particulier dans les cas de blanchiment d’argent et d’autres formes de corruption du secteur privé.
