Corruption is one of the main challenges to the rule of law, life chances and people’s livelihoods in the Western Balkans. However, there is little research on corruption and organised crime in this area. Furthermore, the engagement by civil society on this topic is scarce.
The report, presented by its authors, Uglješa Ugi Zvekić and Sunčana Roksandić, is based on analysis provided by experts who examined corruption and its impact on governance in each country of the WB6, and reviewed each country’s anti-corruption frameworks as well as government efforts to tackle corruption. It is designed to contribute constructively to the implementation and review process of the anti- corruption pledges made as part of the Berlin Process, and highlight areas where further progress is needed.
The event showcased new publications by the Global Initiative Against Organised Crime that are part of its Infrastructure of Integrity series, and took place online on May 6, at 2PM (CET).
