This cross-country report on prevention of public sector corruption analyses the
preventive measures that have proven to be effective and successful in Eastern Europe
and Central Asia. The review focuses on twenty-one countries in Eastern Europe and
Central Asia and includes examples from OECD countries. The report is based on
questionnaires that were completed by governments, NGOs and international partners in
participating countries. In addition, good practice examples presented during expert
seminars in 2013 and 2014, contributions by the Advisory Group and additional research
also feature in the report. The majority of the report was prepared in 2014.
The purpose of this review is to highlight national practices that may be of wider

Guide to Corruption-Free Local Government: Practical ways

Author: Milena Minkova
Publisher: UNDP
Year: 2018
Field(s): anti-corruption
Type: book
This guide is a practical instrument to assist local governments,
UNDP Country Offices (COs), international organizations and civil society organizations (CSOs) to design, implement and monitor anti-corruption at the local government level. This process includes 1) corruption risk assessments; 2) integrity plans; and 3) integrity management systems that result in more transparent, effective, efficient and accountable local governments.
The guide will strengthen the capacity of those working in the
local government sector to effectively manage integrity risks and increase organisational resilience to integrity violations, and thus enable local governments to deliver robust and efficient public services. Strengthening integrity and preventing corruption on local levels will positively affect achievement of a number of Sustainable Development Goals, and especially the Goal 161
, which promotes
peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provides access to justice for all and builds effective, accountable and
inclusive institutions at all levels. Importantly, the guide provides
practical information and practice-based tools to support and
strengthen transparency, effectiveness, efficiency and accountability in local government processes in four important ways:
First, the guide provides users with vital background information to enhance their knowledge of the concept of local government integrity, the opportunities for integrity violations, and
their relationship to preventing corruption.
Second, it presents a range of adaptive tools (methodologies)
and examples to lead anti-corruption practitioners to identify,
analyse and evaluate integrity risks in their own contexts.
Third, it advises on how to carry out effective integrity planning
by enabling users to design, implement and monitor integrity
plans that address integrity risks with the most adequate and
appropriate risk treatment measures.
Fourth, it instructs users on how to sustain and improve an integrity management system (IMS) that ensures implementation of integrity plans and contributes to continuous improvement of integrity management practices on the local government level.

International co-operation in corruption cases

Author: OECD ACN
Publisher: Secretary-General of the OECD
Year: 2017
Field(s): anti-corruption
Type: book
Corruption schemes are becoming increasingly sophisticated and often involve the commission of criminal acts in multiple jurisdictions. This makes the enforcement of criminal legislation especially challenging for law enforcement and prosecution agencies. As a result, international cooperation in its
various forms has become critically important for successfully investigating and prosecuting high-profile and complex corruption cases. This cross-country report analyses international cooperation in corruption cases in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The report focuses on the 25 countries participating in the AntiCorruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ACN). The report is based on data provided by the ACN governments in the form of replies to questionnaires as well as information obtained from desk
research. It also reflects the discussions and examples of practices that have been presented during ACN
meetings. The report was prepared in 2016.
The aim of this report is to create a practical tool to assist relevant authorities on the ground in their everyday work in engaging in international cooperation in corruption cases. The study’s specific objectives are (1) to analyse the state of play in international cooperation for corruption cases, including legal and institutional arrangements as well as practical experience; (2) to identify good practices and common problems (including through case studies of good practice in selected countries) and to develop recommendations; (3) to identify capacity building and training needs for the relevant authorities; and (4)
to contribute, along with other ACN follow-up activities, to establishing contacts among relevant
professionals that support effective and efficient mutual legal assistance and other forms of international
cooperation. The study addresses international cooperation, including mutual legal assistance, direct law enforcement cooperation, the use of joint investigative teams, cooperation in special investigative measures, and various modern mechanisms for cooperation in criminal matters.

The Review was launched at an event in Kyiv on 14 February 2019. It is a contribution to a broader project focused on energy sector reform in Ukraine funded by the Government of Norway.

OECD (2018), Confiscation of instrumentalities and proceeds of corruption crimes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Author: OECD ACN
Publisher: Secretary-General of the OECD
Year: 2018
Field(s): anti-corruption
Type: book
Financial gain is a primary motive in most corruption offences. This makes confiscation of the proceeds of
corruption an effective way to combat corruption offences and to stop laundering of the proceeds, as it
deprives the perpetrators of their illicit and unjust gains.
This thematic study, Confiscation of instrumentalities and proceeds of corruption crimes in Eastern
Europe and Central Asia, analyses the state of play in relevant areas to identify best practices and common
problems and to develop regional recommendations for strengthening anti-corruption policies and practices.
This thematic study was prepared within the framework of the Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe
and Central Asia (ACN) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) with the
funding of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs
(INL) for the project Support to Fight Against Corruption through Law Enforcement in Kyrgyzstan.
The study was conducted based on responses to a questionnaire and other materials provided by the
governments of ACN participating countries, namely: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania,
Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine.
The study also reflects the discussions and examples of best practices that were presented during the meetings
of the ACN Law-Enforcement Network in 2016-2017. Additional research was conducted to enrich the
report with the data from OECD countries. The study was prepared mainly in 2017.
