The Istanbul Anti-Corruption Action Plan

Progress and Challenges

image of The Istanbul Anti-Corruption Action Plan

Corruption is a serious concern in many parts of the world. In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, transition processes provided particularly rich ground for corruption. This volume analyses a broad range of anti-corruption measures recently implemented in Eastern Europe and Central Asia and identifies where interim progress has been achieved, and where further or reinforced action is needed. The book covers such areas as: anti-corruption strategies, and action plans and mechanisms to monitor their implementation; as well as anti-corruption criminal legislation and its application in practice, including the key role of specialised, independent and well-resourced anti-corruption law-enforcement bodies. The volume also examines a diverse range of measures to prevent corruption among public officials, in political parties, and in the private sector. It  is rich with country data and practical examples, and will provide a useful source of information for anti-corruption decision makers and practitioners in Eastern Europe and Central Asia and beyond.

Executive Summary

Eastern Europe and Central Asia are among the most corrupt regions in the world. Corruption is particularly high in the former Soviet states. Many politicians admit that corruption has become endemic, and have declared their will to fight it. Too often, however, these declarations are not followed by action. Even when actions are taken, they rarely bring immediate and visible results.
