Project : Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) 2011-2012


The Transparency International Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) in South Eastern Europe are places where victims and witnesses of corruption report cases and receive practical legal advice to enable them to file and pursue official complaints with the relevant national institutions. The ALACs motivate the active involvement of citizens in the fight against corruption by providing simple, credible and viable mechanisms. They offer direct help in form of legal support while at the same time using information gained from citizen complaints to identify corruption-facilitating weaknesses in the system and to advocate for reform based on the concrete evidence of citizen’s complaints. ALACs thereby function as mediator, enabling ordinary citizens to hold institutions accountable, translating their concerns into systematic improvements.

The overall objective of the project is to:
•    Enhance the quality of democratic governance by enabling citizens to participate in the fight against corruption, to effectively hold their government accountable and contribute to systemic improvements.
The immediate objectives are to:
•    Empower victims and witnesses of corruption to address their grievances and thereby to hold institutions accountable in the implementation of anti-corruption laws
•    Strengthen the ability and willingness of institutions to receive and act upon corruption-related complaints
•    Bring about systemic improvements (legal, administrative and institutional) in the fight against corruption.

The ALACs have four main components:
•    Hotline and/or other citizen-engagement mode: Victims of corruption receive initial advice about their rights and, where prima facie evidence of corruption exists, referral for further legal counseling.
•    Legal Advice: Citizens are helped to articulate, develop, file and pursue their complaints with the assistance of legal professionals employed by the centers.
•    Advocacy: Based on the cases presented to the centers, advocacy is carried out to raise awareness about the sectors and institutions which are the subject of most complaints (e.g., press releases showing statistical breakdowns of complaints received) and in highlighting attention to specific legal and institutional vulnerabilities and providing recommendations for enhanced implementation of anti-corruption laws.
•    Capacity Building: Support is provided to state authorities to strengthen their capacity to process complaints.
