The Foundation Open Society – Macedonia is implementing the project “Strengthened integrity systems to combat corruption at the local level” within the USAID Civic Engagement Project.
The goal of the project is to contribute to the promotion of good governance at the local level by strengthening the local government’s resistance to corruption and conflict of interests.
In the first phase (2020 – 2021) the project focused on: (1) the introduction of integrity systems in five municipalities (Želino, Karpoš, Dojran, Prilep, Ohrid); (2) increasing civic involvement in the fight against corruption and conflict of interests, especially the vulnerable categories of citizens, by increasing the volume of reported cases, and by providing legal assistance and information.
In the second phase (2021 – 2022), the project works on: (1) introduction of integrity systems in five new municipalities (Šuto Orizari, Berovo, Valandovo, Kavadarci, Kičevo); and (2) support for the implementation of integrity systems in three municipalities (Želino, Dojran, Ohrid).
Within the framework of project activities in the period February 9-18, 2022, in these five municipalities, the TIM Institute conducted a survey on the experiences, attitudes and perceptions of corruption and conflict of interests. For the research, a multilevel stratified representative sample of the individual 5 municipalities was used and it was conducted on a total of 1001 respondents, aged 18 years and older, living in households in the territory of the municipalities of Šuto Orizari, Kičevo, Kavadarci, Valandovo and Berovo.
