Ending Impunity For Grand Corruption In The Western Balkans And Turkey

Transparency International is implementing a new regional project in the Western Balkans and Turkey. This project deals with particularly dangerous forms of corruption, namely "grand corruption", in connection with the definition of this term that Transparency International has defined at the global level. The goal is to ensure easier prosecution and international cooperation of perpetrators of such crimes through the incrimination of corruption cases that cause particularly great damage to society or seriously endanger human rights and the environment.  The definition promoted by TI is: "Grand corruption is the abuse of high-level power that benefits the few at the expense of the many."

Within this project, we monitor normative solutions and the practice of prosecuting the most serious forms of corruption in the countries of the region, which includes both cases that have been prosecuted and those for which there were suspicions in the public, but have not been investigated. The observation period will cover a period longer than a decade.

Another aspect of the project is monitoring the phenomenon that laws and other general legal acts are adapted to individual interests. The subject of the research is known cases of that kind for which there is evidence or publicly expressed suspicions that have not been properly investigated, as well as regulations that should represent a barrier to such phenomena.

The project is implemented with the support of the European Commission and lasts for two years.
