Punblication: Anti-corruption strategies in some South-Eastern European states: an empirical study on the impact of the government performance (MPRA, 3 Sept 2010)

The preoccupations about conceiving and promoting efficient anti-corruption strategies exist in

most states, especially in the developing countries.

The opportunity of such strategies derives from the direct link, demonstrated theoretically and

empirically, between the effects of the anti-corruption strategies and government performance,

translated both in the economic and social results and living standard, welfare etc.

In the last decades, the transnational actors – UN, World Bank, OECD, EU etc. - have affirmed as

promoters of own anti-corruption strategies, directing the states’ efforts, conferring adequate levels

of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency or sustainability.

The South-Eastern European states incorporate own anti-corruption strategies in the framework of

general strategies, aiming the government reform in the context of the European integration process.

Strengthening the public integrity, reducing corruption, developing a genuine climate of economic

freedom become important objectives concerning the impact on government performance.

The paper incorporates briefly the main characteristics of anti-corruption strategies, developed by

transnational actors and it aims to shape theoretical and empirical frameworks for the impact of

anti-corruption strategies.

The focus on some South-Eastern European states has a demonstrative character, as the presented

analyses may be extended to various geo-political areas.
