The main idea of the project was not to study the phenomenon of corruption abstractly but rather to explore profoundly some particular corruption scandals. For this purpose a special task-force was established. It included investigative journalists, experts, representatives of the Police, Judiciary, Investigation as well as MPs.
With regard to every single case the following main questions were asked: when exactly do different institutions react to the cases of corruption; which are the main players in corruption scandals; which are the persons directly responsible for the investigation of the cases; how is the process of decision making been carried out within the institutions; what is the role and the attitude of the Media, the NGOs and the political players towards the scandals of corruption; which are the laws, institutions or persons impeding or facilitating the investigation of corruption cases; and last but not least when, how and why does a corruption case appear, develop and ends.
The final results of the investigation were presented and discussed at the conference.
