Keywords: corruption, state authorities, formation of anti-corruption institutions, implementation of state anti-corruption policy


Models of formation and development of anti-corruption institutions are analyzed in thearticle. The modern anti-corruption bodies of state power that exist in Germany, Hungary, Finland,Albania, Romania, Lithuania and Latvia are considered.It has been found that in most European countries specialized anti-corruption bodies have beenestablished as an important element of the anti-corruption strategy. The author analyzes the experienceof developing anti-corruption institutions in Lithuania, Romania, Finland, Norway, Germany, Albaniaand others. and found that in Europe there is no one universal model of the anti-corruption body. Theanalysis showed that there are similar law enforcement agencies, corruption prevention services, anticorruptionstrategy management, and multi-purpose organizations. In some countries, several anticorruptionagencies have been set up, and several such institutions can deal with both corruption andother issues. Romania's experience with the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Directorate,which includes not only exposing corruption but also investigating corruption offenses, is effective.Based on the analysis of the system of anti-corruption institutions in European countries,it should be noted that there are three models of formation and development of anti-corruptioninstitutions, in particular:1) there are no specially created anti-corruption institutions, and the functions of preventingand combating corruption are delegated to law enforcement and / or judicial bodies;2) which established a single anti-corruption institution;3) in which the system of anti-corruption bodies of state power operates.Ukraine belongs to the third model, because in our country a system of state authorities isestablished and operates, which implement state policy in the sphere of combating corruption.
