The Institute for Democracy “Societas Civilis” – Skopje published three policy analyses that focus on the oversight role of the Parliament in the fight against corruption in North Macedonia. The analyses are developed within the project “Anti-corruption talk in the Parliament” funded by the National Endowment for Democracy.
The first policy analysis, authored by Misha Popovikj, discusses the role of the Parliament in the EU accession process from an anti-corruption perspective. It looks upon the role of the Parliament in ensuring dialogue between then the government, the opposition, and other stakeholders, and proving continuous oversight as a way to sustainable reforms.
The second policy analysis, authored by Marko Pankovski, looks upon the recent membership of North Macedonia in NATO as a chance to strengthen the parliamentary oversight. The analysis (1) draws a line between NATO and the fight against corruption, (2) looks at the technology of the process through which NATO can strengthen the oversight role of parliaments and their role in the fight against corruption, and (3) underlines good practices to strengthen the role of parliaments in anti-corruption and enhancing good governance.
The third analysis, authored by Simona Mladenovska, provides a comparative overview of the Parliamentary oversight in the fight against corruption in the Western Balkans region. This analysis looks upon the forms through which the Parliament conducts oversight on the national anti-corruption institutions in North Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
