Prevention of Corruption in the Bulgarian Security Forces
Background information

CSD made public the results of its expertise in assessing the impact of the trans-border organized crime on corruption within security forces at a number of international events, among them two international conferences, jointly organized by the Center for the Study of Democracy and the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The first one, Corruption within Security Forces: a Threat to National Securitywas held in May 2001 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and CSD facilitated the input from the Bulgarian government and NGOs in its development and implementation. The regional conference Institutionalizing the Prevention of Corruption in Security Forces: Enhancing Preventive Structures, held in March 2002 in Sofia, Bulgaria, was a 4-day event which brought together 43 senior representatives from nine SEE countries to discuss their roles in building character and leadership within security forces and improving the cooperation between them both internally and externally. The public-private partnership format under which they were implemented has been particularly appropriate as they have allowed participants to work towards the development of integrated responses to corruption.
