Integrity Watch in the Western Balkans and Turkey: civil society combating corruption with political integrity data

Integrity Watch in the Western Balkans and Turkey: civil society combating corruption with political integrity data – seeks to empower citizens and civil society actors organised at large in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey to hold their political office holders to account for the integrity of political finance, law-making and resource allocation. Thus strengthened political integrity shall foster more public decisions consistent with the common good.

By aiming to empower citizens and social oversight, the action supports the global objective of the call to strengthen participatory democracies in the target beneficiaries in the region. A citizenry in better position to hold their governments accountable is essential to mobilise public demand for reforms to strengthen the rule of law and the institutions and systems to confront corruption. Both are essential benchmarks of the EU approximation process in the Western Balkans and Turkey whose strengthening the call seeks in equal terms.

This action addresses: prevention and fighting of political corruption, and government transparency, integrity and accountability. Over the course of three years, the action shall enhance the watchdog roles and capacities of civil society actors (anti-corruption CSOs, data-oriented experts, media) , as well as regional cooperation amongst them, to detect and expose political corruption risks and advocate for transparency, accountability and integrity in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The action furthermore will directly engage oversight bodies such as anti-corruption agencies, ombudspersons, parliamentary committees and other public institutions concerned with political integrity. Specifically, it aims to promote engagement between those civil society actors and key oversight, law enforcement and decision-making bodies. The action’s direct engagement with watchdog CSOs and oversight bodies during the life of the action will refine their understanding of corruption risks in decision making as well as the higher standards that could mitigate such risks. Public information, debates and discourse will then enrich over time and more become conducive to unleash the potential for ‘critical citizens’ or ‘critical trustors’, i.e. citizens empowered to pass judgement on their leaders’ performance and integrity.

Duration of the project: March 2023 – February 2026
