Fight against corruption and Fostering Good Governance/Fight against money-laundering (PGG-Regional)
The current Project represents a continuation of the previous Eastern Partnership assistance. It combines a Regional Component (involving all six Eastern Partnership countries) with Country Components for Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine. Whereas Country Components for Azerbaijan, Belarus and Ukraine primarily focus on combating corruption, the focus of the Country Component for Georgia is on fighting money-laundering.
The PGG-Project aims to address issues raised by the Council of Europe monitoring and advisory bodies in the areas of corruption and money laundering (GRECO and MONEYVAL). In addition to that, activities have also been developed in line with cooperation priorities as defined by Council of Europe Programming Cooperation Documents, Council of Europe Progress Review Reports on Action Plans, and EU Association Agendas and Agreements.
The Project will focus on the following issues:
- Good governance and measures to prevent corruption, including the role of education and public awareness;
- Law enforcement and implementation of legal frameworks aimed at fighting economic crime;
- Pilot Activities: addressing specific country needs/legal reforms.
