Centre for the Study of Democracy organised a round-table discussion dedicated to the successful European models for establishing working anti-corruption policies. The forum was themed “Establishing working anti-corruption policies in Bulgaria: successful experience of the European countries”.
The event was attended by Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister for European Policies Coordination and Institutional Affairs Meglena Kuneva, leading researchers from the biggest European scientific project for the study of anti-corruption policies in the world – ANTICORRP, and others.
“Fight against corruption is one of the most important issues in the political agenda of the country,” said Dr Ognyan Shentov, chairperson of the Centre for the Study of Democracy, speaking at the round-table discussion.
“I think that today we will have the chance to learn the newest things achieved by our colleagues. I would like to thank Ms Kuneva for taking part in today’s discussion. For those of you, who do not follow closely the political process in Bulgaria, I will note that thanks to Ms Kuneva a new anti-corruption system is being established,” Mr Shentov remarked.
“In the spirit of the practical solutions and problems, we will examine a common instrument, which was just established. It is the system for monitoring on the anti-corruption policies. This is not some traditional measuring of the corruption and its levels but a brand new thing that evaluates the efficiency of the anti-corruption policies,” he said further.
