Kyrgyzstan anti-corruption project


The OECD Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia has launched a project to support Kyrgyzstan's anti-corruption agenda. The project aims to strengthen legal and institutional capacity to effectively detect, investigate and prosecute complex corruption in Kyrgyzstan. Specifically:

  • support overhauling anti-corruption criminal legislation of Kyrgyzstan to bring it closer to the international anti-corruption standards.
  • build capacity of the law enforcement agencies to efficiently detect, investigate and prosecute complex corruption cases.

The US Department of State's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) has provided funding for this project.
