  What are Citizens Prepared to Do?



In much the same fashion as other transition countries in the region, Serbia is facing tremendous challenges during its transition period. Even when the government is seen to be
doing the "right thing", the success of the reforms to a large extent depends on whether the citizens believe that the adopted measures are justified. Naturally, if the significant part of the public sees the democratic institutions as corrupt, that trust is going to be eroded.

Therefore, the Transparency International believes that the government should win
the public support by:

1) Ensuring that the citizens and the MEDIA have easy access to the information related
    to the government ACTIVITIES

2) Ensuring that state officials are not advancing their own private interests at the
    expense of a greater public good

In this manner, the government is compelled to be more responsible and serve the
public interest, while reaffirming the value of the democratic institutions, thereby increasing
the public confidence in them.

The first step in this process is the adoption and enactment of relevant laws. For quite
some time now, the draft bills on the free access to information and the prevention of the
conflict of public and private interest have been waiting their turn for adoption in Serbia.
With the expectation that new and better legislation will soon be enacted, our organization
has decided to conduct a thorough analysis of the existing regulations in these two
areas. Through public mood surveys we have tried to ascertain to what degree are the
citizens familiar with these topics and to gauge the public interest in them, as well as to

see what kinds of problems they regard as the top priority along with the types of solutions

they would deem to be adequate. The survey results will serve as a basis for our
future ACTIVITIES. Likewise, we believe that they could also prove beneficial to the public at

large, the state institutions and the international organizations that would like to see our

country prosper.

The reports in this publication represent only one portion of the Transparency Serbia
ACTIVITIES in the first year of the Accountability in the Western Balkans Program.
Moreover, the project has regional context as Transparency International national chapters
in four former Yugoslav republics take part in implementing it. The goal of the project
is to enable the civil society, in cooperation with others who are striving towards a society
founded on openness and accountability, to win the adoption of quality legislation and
subsequently monitor their implementation.

This project was made possible by the Finnish government acting under auspices of
the Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe Anti-Corruption Initiative (SPAI).

Anatomy of Corruption


The book Anatomy of Corruption deals with the phenomenon of corruption using contemporary data, both theoretical and empirical.

In his book, author Dr Predrag Jovanović analyses new phenomena which have appeared over the past few years in countries in transition such as that of capturing the state. The issue here is a situation in which powerful financial groups "buy" MPs, politicians and even entire parties which then tailor the system and legislation in line with the interests of their backers. This phenomenon was particularly apparent in post-Soviet Russia when a powerful group of financial oligarchs virtually ruled Russia through politicians. This "capture" of the state happens in those countries whose institutions are weak. It is for this reason that Dr Jovanović points out steps which must be taken in order to avoid the grave fate of some transition countries which have failed to escape the clutches of the mighty financial oligarchies.

Dr Jovanović has devoted a special section of the book to the current process of privatisation in this country. In addition to an analysis of the latest Serbian Privatisation Act from the perspective of the opportunities for abuse which it hides, the book also presents the parallel experiences of Montenegro, which clearly indicate where danger lurks and how privatisation should not be carried out.

A considerable part of the book is devoted to a field which has been very little studied in this country but which will become all the more important in the future - public procurement. In his book, Dr Jovanović acquaints us with the basic principles on which public procurement must operate in order to conform to European standards. He also presents a detailed description of the ways in which abuse occurs in large investment projects throughout the world, including the experiences of developed countries. At the end of the chapter are listed measures which have proved effective in international practice in combating abuse in tenders and auctions.
