The Future of Anti-corruption Measures in Lithuania

Bryane Michael, Eleanor Kennon, Jeppe Kromann Hansen


In the 1990s, Lithuania - like most other Central European countries - implemented a wide-reaching anti-corruption programme. Supporting most anti-corruption programmes in these countries has been an ad-hoc assortment of anti-corruption training conducted by various public sector institutions. Using analysis redolent of a neo-functional perspective, this article argues that the hodge-podge of anticorruption training programmes form a more or less coherent system. Like any system, design directly impacts on performance. The lack of systemic training programme design in the Central and Eastern Europe has resulted in the sub-optimal performance of these anti-corruption programmes. Thinking about the systemic properties of anti-corruption training – by evoking the concept of the National Anti-Corruption Training Program (NACTP) – can help with the assessment and improvement of anticorruption in Lithuania and the region.
