The OECD Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia, in cooperation with the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, US Department of State, has launched a project to support strengthening Uzbekistan’s legal and institutional capacity to efficiently investigate and prosecute complex corruption cases and enhance its implementation of Istanbul Anti-Corruption Action Plan (IAP) recommendations.

Specifically, the project aims to:  

1. Support the Academy of the Prosecutor General’s Office (GPO) to:

  • Build the capacity of law enforcement to efficiently investigate and prosecute complex corruption cases
  • Promote integrity, adherence to the rules on ethics, conflict of interests and other related integrity regulations by law enforcement

2. Support the implementation of the selected measures of the State Ant-Corruption Programme and the work of the Interagency Commission to:

  • Contribute to the development of selected anti-corruption legislation
  • Strengthen the coordination and monitoring capacities of the Commission’s Secretariat

3. Bring Uzbekistan closer to international anti-corruption standards:

  • Raise awareness on international standards and IAP recommendations
  • Promote and facilitate monitoring by the OECD Anti-Corruption Network for Central Asia and Eastern Europe
  • Promote regional cooperation in corruption cases

The OECD's main counterpart in this project in Uzbekistan is the Office of the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Uzbekistan and its Academy. Other stakeholders include the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Justice, Parliament, Strategy Development Centre and the Tashkent University Law Faculty.
