Background

The Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo project (SAEK III) will provide expert support to the authorities in drafting policy documents, including national strategies and action plans, legislation, conflict of interest recusal procedures, judicial oversight mechanisms and other anti-corruption mechanisms and instruments, building upon interventions implemented throughout SAEK I and SAEK II.
