Key messages from the SELDI Second Regional Anti-Corruption Policy Forum

The current posters present the key messages from the SELDI Second Regional Anti-Corruption Policy Forum: Countering Corruption and State Capture in Southeast Europe, held on 29 September 2016 in Skopje. The participants in the forum agreed that in the past ten years, both the nature of corruption and the anticorruption agenda in Southeast Europe have changed. Political corruption has replaced petty bribery both as the dominant concern of national and international reformists and as one of the leading causes for most social and economic damage. The earlier emphasis on harmonising national legislation with international standards has now been substituted by a focus on its enforcement. In that respect, critical sectors with high corruption and state-capture risks should be addressed with priority.
