The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the corruption environment and dynamics in the Republic of Macedonia. It is based on the findings of the Corruption Monitoring System (CMS), developed by the Center for the Study of Democracy, and developed by the SELDI partner organisation, the Macedonian Center for International Cooperation (MCIC) with support from the USAID Macedonian Anti-Corruption Program.
The Corruption Assessment Report (CAR) encompasses seven specific chapters. The first part analyzes the corruption levels in Macedonia, based on survey findings from both the population and representatives of the business sector. A total of seven indexes measure, among others, the citizens’ actual experience with corruption, as well as their attitudes towards and perceptions of corruption. Anti-corruption policies and legal framework are assessed in the second part, while institutional practices and the effectiveness of law enforcement are covered in chapter three. Further, the report discusses the role of the judiciary in dealing with corruption and the corruption in the economy. The CAR also makes an assessment of the civil society`s role in the fight against corruption, as well as the impact of international support and cooperation for anti-corruption policy developments.
