Fight against Corruption – The Problem Child of the Carpatian Country

by PhD Stefanie Ricarda Roos

Also in the second year after EU accession, Romania is only proceeding slowly in the fight against corruption

The topic of „fight against corruption“ has been ruling the public agenda in Romania for several years. Its accession to the European Union (EU) on 1 January 2007 has not changed anything in this respect. To the contrary: since Romania’s EU accession, the fight against corruption has been occupying national and international media, politics, economy, lawyers and civil society to a hitherto unknown extent.
