Our public policy researchers, Dina Bajramspahić and Ana Đurnić, held a meeting today with members of the Council of the Agency for Prevention of Corruption and representatives of the Agency. At the meeting, Dina and Ana presented a project “Towards Qualitative Signs of the Anti-corruption Efficacy”, which IA is implementing with the financial support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands.
Within the project, we prepared and presented Draft of the Recommendations for improving the work of the Agency in 2017. At the meeting, we discussed the Draft of the recommendations, exchanged opinions with the members of the Council and Agency’s employees on recommendations, but also considered other solutions for improving the work of the Agency that were not addressed in the Draft of the recommendations.
Representatives of Institute Alternative (IA) had a chance to hear about the Agency’s current activities and future plans to achieve greater efficiency and transparency in the work of this institution.
Taking into account all the arguments that IA representatives presented, as well as the new information presented by the institution’s representatives, IA will define the final recommendations and submit the document to the Agency.
The project “Towards Qualitative Signs of the Anti-corruption Efficacy” aims to influence three burning issues concerning the fight against corruption in Montenegro: poor reporting and monitoring mechanism – particularly reporting on implementation of the Action Plan for Chapter 23, still weak anti-corruption institutions and lack of available information about the shortcomings in their work that are preventing them from being more efficient.
