The preoccupations about conceiving and promoting efficient anti-corruption strategies exist in most states, especially in
the developing countries.
The opportunity of such strategies derives from the direct link, demonstrated theoretically and empirically, between the
effects of the anti-corruption strategies and government performance, translated both in the economic and social results
and living standard, welfare etc.
In the last decades, the transnational actors – UN, World Bank, OECD, EU etc. - have affirmed as promoters of own
anti-corruption strategies, directing the states’ efforts, conferring adequate levels of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency
The South-Eastern European states incorporate own anti-corruption strategies in the framework of general strategies,
aiming the government reform in the context of the European integration process.
Strengthening the public integrity, reducing corruption, developing a genuine climate of economic freedom become
important objectives concerning the impact on government performance.
The paper incorporates briefly the main characteristics of anti-corruption strategies, developed by transnational actors
and it aims to shape theoretical and empirical frameworks for the assessment of anti-corruption strategies.
The focus on some South-Eastern European states has a demonstrative character, as the presented analyses may be
extended to various geo-political areas.
