Transparency International Romania is partners with the Pro Democracy association in this project. The project aims to raise integrity standards and develop the capacity of local public administration to fight against corruption. The project is implemented in 7 medium-size towns in Romania: Alexandria, Baia Mare, Brăila, Craiova, Focşani, Lupeni, Oradea.
The aim of the project is to promote principles of good practices in relation to the implementation of Law 544/2001, regulating public information at the level of central, county and local authorities and institutions.
The project aims to increase transparency of decision-making at the level of local councils and mayor’s offices in Bucharest and 14 other municipalities and townships in Romania: Alexandria, Arad, Baia Mare, Botoşani, Brăila, Caracal, Constanţa, Craiova, Galaţi, Oneşti, Oradea, Piatra Neamţ, Ploieşti and Tulcea.
The project aims to promote NGO’s as important social actors and expertise providers in the field of raising awareness on major social issues. This will be achieved through a national information campaign on the legal and deontological regulations on receiving bribes in a public capacity.
The rationale of the project is to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Justice, as a beneficiary in the project, so that the Ministry can design and implement a public awareness campaign on the theme of corruption and its manifold aspects: causes, risks, approaches to anticorruption. The activities of the project focus around education of the public and the representatives of the target groups (public services, business environment, schools, hospitals, the judiciary etc) in regard to the negative consequences corruption has on democracy and socio-economic development. The project also aims to inform the public about their legal and moral responsibility to fight corruption, as well as about the practical methods to fulfill this responsibility.
The aim of the project is to promote the concept of public integrity in the educational system and to encourage a pro-active attitude in approaching situations with a high risk of being non-ethical, identified by teachers, administrative staff, students or parents.
The project aims at improving the legal frame regarding money laundering, by addressing current flaws of mechanisms in place to detect illegal gains obtained from high corruption, fiscal fraud and organized crime. Also, the project aims to improve law enforcement capacity in combating corruption and money laundering as a result of corruption.
