Methodology for Assessing the Capacities of Anti-Corruption Agencies to Perform Preventive Functions
Source of the information:
This Methodology has been developed by UNDP Bratislava Regional Centre (BRC) building on best practices and lessons learned derived from support provided to anticorruption agencies in the specific context of the Eastern European and the CIS countries, as well as on a series of analysis/researches regarding the same area.
While the Methodology can be considered as a valid instrument for supporting anti-corruption agencies in different parts of the world, it has to be mentioned that the specificities of corruption as well as of the administrative systems of the region shaped some of the observations and recommendations contained in the document that may not fully apply or may have different application in other regions.
The Anti-Corruption Agencies (ACAs) that were subject to the mentioned research and analysis operate in an environment, in which levels of administrative corruption and state capture remain high after almost two decades of transition; it seems evident that, despite the distinctive characteristics of the different countries, some of their shared legacy from recent history has a bear on the degree and specifics of the corruption phenomenon across the region.
