Ecorys supports the European Commission with the fight against corruption| Security and Justice
Ecorys assists the European Commission Directorate General for Migration and Home Affairs (DG Home) in their anti-corruption efforts.
Corruption is detrimental to economic, social and political development. The estimated costs of corruption are immense and corruption violates fundamental principles of democracy. As a consequence, corruption threatens the stability of political systems, as it ultimately damages the rule of law and social justice. Frequent scandals in nearly all European countries illustrate that corruption poses a serious problem for EU Member States.
For the next years, Ecorys will work alongside DG Home together with a network of local anti-corruption experts from all EU Member States. These experts will regularly report on and analyze anti-corruption developments in their countries. Beside this, Ecorys will support the organization of workshops under the EU anti-corruption experience-sharing program and will assist DG Home in its work in the framework of the European Semester of economic governance.
The first year project activities started on 6 May 2019.
