Corruption Prone Areas In Turkey

A true understanding of corruption risk exposure for public institutions is the key and necessary first step in building effective anti-corruption policies. Diagnosing for corruption risks allows institutions to properly design mitigation strategies and strategically allocate resources to combat potential instances of corruption. Recognizing the importance of spotting weaknesses in anti-corruption efforts provides advantages for policy making in corruption prevention. With such an approach, public ofcials and policy makers can improve the quality of public service and minimize the associated costs in the budget. 

This study attempts to provide an overview of Turkey’s anti-corruption efforts, vulnerabilities, and areas for improvement with a particular focus on identifcation and measurement of corruption. In order to improve transparent and accountable practices for sustainable economic growth and development, this project proposes to devise a strategic framework for increased transparency in the private and public sector, and their interaction with the state institutions in charge of organizing anti-corruption efforts. By doing so, we aim to identify the main areas with high corruption hazard and provide suggestions for improved conditions of transparency, competitiveness and prosperity in Turkey.
