Presentation of the Global Corruption Barometer of Transparency International for 2015/2016 - Results for Serbia -

• Is there more or less corruption than four years ago?

• Have the people in the past year bribed someone in the traffic police, health, education and other parts of the public sector?

• How many acts of corruption have remained undiscovered in the last year?

• Is the government good at fighting corruption?

• Are the enactment of the Law on Protection of Whistleblowers and other anti-corruption measures resulted in the reporting of corruption?

• Would citizens report corruption? What are the reasons for not doing it more often?

• How would the citizens oppose corruption?

• How corrupt are individual institutions and officials, by the opinion of citizens (president/prime minister and the ministers in his cabinet, MPs, government officials, representatives in local government bodies, tax officials, police, judiciary, directors of enterprises, religious leaders)?

These are some of the questions to which we will try to look for the answers in the results of the Global Corruption Barometer - the world's largest research that explores the direct experience of citizens with corruption, their perception of corruption in some institutions, citizens' satisfaction with the government performance in the fight against corruption and the willingness of citizens to engage in fight against corruption.

Transparency Serbia will on Tuesday 20 September at 11 am present the first round of results of the Global Corruption Barometer of Transparency International for 2015/2016, at a press conference that will be held in the premises of the organization, in Belgrade, Palmotićeva 31/III.

The speakers:

11:00 - 11:10 PhD Vladimir Goati, President of TS - Foreword

11:10 - 11:30 Nemanja Nenadic, Program Director of TS - Main findings of the survey

11:30 - 11:35 Rade Djuric, Advisor in the Anti-corruption counseling of TS - The results of the Global Corruption Barometer and experiences from the Anticorruption Legal Advisory Center of TS

11:35 - 11:45 Questions and answers

Although in recent years, many other studies published in Serbia provide answers to some of these questions and trends, the Global Corruption Barometer allows you to compare trends from 2005 to 2016.


According to the opinion of Transparency Serbia, the main problem of corruption in Serbia is the fact that a very small number of cases of these criminal acts gets reported. Global Corruption Barometer and similar researches about corruption (as opposed to those dealing specifically with perception) provide an opportunity to gain insight into the size of the "dark figures of crime" because, based on respondents' answers, at least general assessment of the extent of the minimum number of corruption cases that occur each year, can be made.

Finally, given that the Transparency Serbia has led Anticorruption counseling for years, presenting the findings of the Global Corruption Barometer will be an excellent opportunity to present part of the experience from its’ work as well - with what type of problems citizens usually turn to, how the anticorruption system works and what are the most problematic areas.

Second round of results (the results of Serbia in comparison to other countries of the region and the world) will be presented in mid-November 2016, date will be determined later.

Narrative and graphical display of the results in Serbian and English language have been prepared for all participants of the conference. Translation is not provided.
