Council of the Baltic Sea States Working Group on Democratic Institutions (WGDI)


The lead topic during the period when the WGDI was chaired by Latvia was strengthening the rule of law through good governance: corruption prevention in public administration. Latvia continued the work initiated by Poland in 2006-2007. However, this year the intention was to focus on the potential threat posed by corruption to public institutions and their integrity, impartiality and legitimacy. The result of the WGDI work in 2007-2008 is comparative analysis of the practice of corruption prevention in public administration in the Baltic Sea Region. This analysis focuses on internal mechanisms of corruption prevention and promotion of integrity in public administration. It provides a concise overview of countries’ strategic approaches to anti-corruption at large and, in particular, measures available to public agencies to prevent possible corruption internally.
