Corruption remains a major challenge to democracy and the rule of law in Europe. Since the late 1990s, however, many European countries have set up institutions specialising in the prevention and control of corruption. This publication provides clearly presented information on good practice in this field, including: a conceptual framework for setting up anti-corruption services; an assessment of experience to date; profiles of anti-corruption services in Europe.The appendices include conclusions from the Council of Europe's conferences of specialised anti-corruption services (between 1996 and 2001), which have been instrumental in shaping European standards and practices, as attested by the fact that most European countries now have such services. This publication will be of interest to all those involved in developing anti-corruption strategies, including policy makers, governments and NGOs.
