Report ARE MUNICIPALITIES IN MONTENEGRO FIGHTING AGAINST CORRUPTION AND HOW? gives an overview of results of local self-governments in the application of mechanisms of prevention and fight against corruption at the local level in Montenegro during 2017 and the first half of 2018. In this regard, the report contains new information in relation to application of defined measures and activities through several strategic documents, to which results of application we have given a first review in the previous report THINK LOCALLY – ACT LOCALLY which has covered the period until 2016.

The observed reporting period has been marked by inertness of municipal administrations in relation to undertaken obligations defined by national documents, as well as the lack of initiative for their own designed activities. Activities of the central level of government in establishing of institutionally-normative anti-corruption framework did not influence encouragingly the local level of government in the part of implementation of adequate anti-corruption policies and mechanisms at the local level.

The report is a part of the project ‘Let’s Put Corruption into Museum!’ realised by Centre for Civic Education (CCE) in partnership with NGO Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI), NGO Bonum from Pljevlja, NGO UL-Info from Ulcinj and NGO For A Friend from Petrovac, in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Administration and Agency for Prevention of Corruption (APC), and is financed by the European Union.
