Assessment of Anticorruption Measures in the Social and Child Protections System

Assessment of Anticorruption Measures in the Social and Child Protections System

May 25, 2022

The Agency for Prevention of Corruption, in cooperation with UNDP Montenegro, has developed a Methodology for Assessing the Anti-corruption Measures, as a new tool in the fight against corruption. The purpose of the methodology is to assess whether the authorities are implementing anti-corruption measures, i.e. to what extent the implementation has led to a certain change, as well as to encourage the authorities to be proactive in planning and implementing anti-corruption measures that are not mandatory.

The pilot version of the Methodology was applied to authorities from two selected sectors: State Administration and other Public Authorities and Social and Child Protection, and its development took into account the recommendations given in the description of the methodology "Assessment of Anti-Corruption Initiatives" conducted by the Civil Rights and Anti-Corruption Commission of the Republic of Korea.

The report presents the performance of social and child protection institutions in five categories as well as a set of recommendations for improving the state of play in order to fight corruption more effectively.

The development of the Methodology for Assessing Anticorruption Measures was supported within the framework of the “Strengthening capacities for the acceleration of EU accession of Montenegro” project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with the Office for European Integration and the General Secretariat of the Government. Within the course of this specific action, the support was extended to the Agency for Prevention of Corruption by the consultants Dragana Krunić and Marko Sošić.
