The Public Administration Corruption Prevention Programme, which aimed at eliminating corruption within public administration and to some extent at the broader public sphere, was adopted on 28th March 2012. The Public Administration Corruption Prevention Programme emphasized the importance of the prevention of corruption and the enhancement of integrity alongside the legal instruments.

The scope of the Public Administration Corruption Prevention Programme was broadened by the National Anti-Corruption Programme (2015-2018) (hereafter referred to as the “Programme”) as its target group not only covers state actors but also citizens and the private sector.

The general aim of the Programme is the elimination of corruption in Hungary by way of strengthening organisational resistance, citizen awareness, public trust, transparency, as well as taking firm and effective action against offenders of corruption related crimes. 

The areas of intervention include: enhancing the transparency of how the state budget is used, developing administrative procedures, promoting ethical business practices, broadening of anti-corruption education and training, awareness-raising and the strengthening of human and material resources necessary for the effective fight against corruption.

The Programme is implemented by way of Action Plans covering two-year periods.
