TI: Despite the fight, Kosovo has yet to control corruption

With 41 points, Kosovo has made progress in the fight against corruption, but it has yet to keep the phenomenon under control, according to the Transparency International report for 2022.

“Kosovo has made progress with an improved legal framework for the funding of political and election campaigns, but the implementation of these reforms will be crucial in the coming months,” the report notes.

“The government has to further improve transparency and refrain from any interference in the judicial system”.

The report further notes that although corruption scandals have been revealed last year “this does not mean that corruption is under control”.

“Low budgetary expenditures for capital investments in the last couple of years have reduced the possibility of corruption in the allocation of public contracts, something that has been a problem in the past,” the report also notes.
