EUROPEAN COMMISSION STUDY: STRENGTHENING THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION: ASSESSING THE EU LEGISLATIVE AND POLICY FRAMEWORK

On 3 January, the EU published this report, saying that the results of the study – a key deliverable of the EU Organised Crime Strategy 2021-2025 – will feed into the Commission’s legislative proposal on combating corruption by criminal law.  The European Commission contracted this study, carried out by EY and RAND, to analyse the gaps in the EU legislative framework in the area of corruption prevention and repression, to provide recommendations for possible EU measures to address these gaps and to assess and compare their impacts.  It finds that an EU intervention could create added value by contributing to ensuring a level playing field between Member States, hence contributing towards greater harmonisation of national approaches in fighting against corruption.
