Session 12: Corruption and Informality – Have the Developed Democracies and Part of Balkans Learned to Tame Them?

Session 12: Corruption and Informality – Have the Developed Democracies and Part of Balkans Learned to Tame Them?

Discussion topics:

  • What it a ‘normal’ level of informality in day-to-day decision-making in public administration and when does it become a danger for good governance?
  • The rules and institutions for the prevention and suppression of corruption have mushroomed in the past two decades? Are there any good practices and notable examples from the region and elsewhere that could stand as a model for overcoming the problems of corruption and informality? What are their limits?
  • How can corrupt behavior be changed and the social demand for corruption be diminished?
  • Can corruption be fought in closed systems such as the security sector or in the top ranks of decision-making?
