This report looks at how to curb corruption and build a more competitive economy in the Republic of Kazakhstan by assessing four crucial factors: governance, prevention, detection, and prosecution and recovery. In its analysis, it draws on good international practices as well as OECD instruments and tools in 15 policy areas: regulatory governance, competition policy, public financial management, development co-operation, public sector integrity, public procurement, tax administration and transparency, export credits, lobbying, whistleblower protection, business sector integrity, criminalising bribery, civil society, and media. The report provides recommendations for improving Kazakhstan’s laws and policies as well as effectively implementing them in each of these areas.



Development co-operation in Kazakhstan

Development co-operation is related to a country’s public integrity system in two ways. First, it can be used to combat corruption. Second, funds received and provided need to be safeguarded against corruption, to ensure they are ultimately used for their intended purposes. This chapter assesses the role of development co-operation in promoting integrity and combating corruption in the Republic of Kazakhstan. An assessment of Official Development Assistance (ODA) support for integrity measures in the country is followed by an analysis of Kazakhstan’s role as an emerging provider of development assistance. Transparency of development assistance, in regards to both receipts and contributions, is also evaluated.
