CRPE Policy Memo n0.40, July 2013
Authors: Cristian Ghinea, Bianca Toma
The Romanian Center for European Policies launches the report “Contribution to the development partnership between Romania and Moldova: INTEGRITY – The legislative framework and the anti-corruption treatment” – a blueprint of best practices and institutional solutions applied by the National Integrity Agency (ANI) Romania in an exchange experience on models of technical and legislative solutions for a healthy institution establishment for the National Integrity Commission of the Republic of Moldova.
The recommendations of this report have resulted from the visit organized by the Romanian Center for European Policies and Foreign Policy Association of Moldova in which the representatives of the newly established Commission for Integrity in Moldova were the guests of the National Integrity Agency in Bucharest.
Establishment of key institutions such as the National Integrity Commission (NIC) of the Republic of Moldova – in December 2012 – is an important step in the complicated and lengthy process of judicial reform, especially in terms of negotiations with the European Union. The experience of other former candidate countries in the region, especially Romania – one of the key promoters of Moldova’s European integration – in the area of judicial reform and the fight against corruption are therefore extremely precious.
