Anticorruption management

Corruption is a complex phenomenon, conditioned by the specificity of the socio-cultural history of a society, its political and economic development and managerial practices. Corruption has a devastating effect on the overall functioning of each institution globally. It is impossible to modernise economies without destroying corrupt practices.

Expanding political and economic cooperation between countries and globalization make corruption an international problem. It builds a negative image of a country on the international scene and prevents foreign investment in national economies. It is a significant barrier to innovation and the introduction of new technologies.

Combating Corruption is a key criterion for the consolidation of democratic institutions and the introduction of modern standards and democratic control in the governance of society and the development of the economy.
