Limiting corruption in Bulgarian society calls not
only for institutional and legal measures but also for establishing
the rule of law. In this sense, it is of crucial importance to
foster a political and economic culture based on trust and respect
for public institutions, on transparency and openness in the
actions of public administration, and the will to achieve stability
and predictability of the economic and social environment.
Coalition 2000 is an initiative of Bulgarian
non-governmental organizations which was launched in the spring of
1997 aimed at limiting corruption in Bulgarian society through a
partnership between state institutions, non-governmental
organizations, and individuals, who developed and have been
implementing an Anti-Corruption Action Plan, Corruption Monitoring
System, and an anti-corruption public awareness campaign.
The Corruption Assessment Report 2001 follows the
structure and approach of the Action Plan adopted by the Policy
Forum of Coalition 2000 in November, 1998. It presents a
general evaluation of the state and dynamic of corruption in
Bulgarian society and of the efforts to counteract corruption in
the year 2001.
