Infrastructure of Integrity-Corruption and anti-corruption pledges in the Western Balkans Print E-mail
06.10.2020 Corruption is one of the main challenges to the rule of law, life chances and people’s livelihoods in the Western Balkans. It is both a cause and consequence of a criminal culture that permeates the region, and the way that corruption is linked to politics suggests a degree of organized corruption, and even elements of state capture, in a number of countries in the region.

In the Western Balkans there is little research on corruption and organized crime, and there is near silence within academia and intelligentsia on the subject. Regionally, there is also limited engagement by civil society on the topic of corruption. Many initiatives, including this report, rely on external support.

The right to know is crucial in a crisis Print E-mail
 COVID-19 is no reason for restrictions on freedom of information 

28.09.2020 This International Right to Know Day, we call on all governments and public authorities to ensure that the ongoing COVID-19 crisis is not a pretext for limiting citizens’ right to information. Legal and practical processes for accessing information should now be restored to pre-pandemic levels and even improved upon. 

The transparent and timely sharing of information with the public, on both a proactive and reactive basis, is crucial for protecting public health, preventing corruption, safeguarding democratic institutions and improving policy and-decision-making. However, more than six months after the declaration of the pandemic, while many governments have found ways to return to normal operations despite challenges created by the pandemic, freedom of information requests continue to be delayed or refused. Crucial information about the pandemic and how governments are using public funds is not available to the public in many places. This impairs citizens’ rights to access information, participate in public discourse and hold their government accountable.

Solidarity with people of Belarus Print E-mail

A joint statement by Transparency International’s Europe and Central Asia chapters

17.08.2020 Transparency International’s Europe and Central Asia chapters stand in solidarity with the people of Belarus who have been calling for an end of the country’s authoritarian rule following elections widely condemned by the international community for being rigged.

Belarus is often referred to as the last dictatorship in Europe. Autocrats like President Alexander Lukashenko believe they can ignore the will of the people and cling to power through repression and the use of force. The current political crisis is the culmination of the desires of ordinary people demanding change and respect for their rights.
