The overall objective of this Project was to facilitate the efficient implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (ratified by Russia in March 2006) and the Council of Europe’s Criminal Law Convention on Corruption (ratified by Russia in July 2006).

The Project focused primarily on the elaboration of preventive, pro-active measures against corruption such as verifying legislation in force with respect to corruption opportunities it creates and elaborating proposals for a national anti-corruption strategy.

A multi-disciplinary team of Russian and international Project experts developed a set of recommendations and legislative proposals that were made available to the Project partner.

The results of the project are presented in the final report both in English and in Russian. The reports and proposals made by international and national experts in the framework of the project are put together in the appendices to the final narrative report.
