Since 2010, the Office is running a broad programme to help Tajikistan with the considerable challenges it faces in the field of corruption and governance. The programme consists mainly of awareness-raising projects, training seminars, and assistance with the reform of Tajikistan’s legal framework. It assisted the government in putting together a national anti-corruption strategy.
The Office works in areas such as corruption prevention; the criminalization of corruption related crimes; asset declarations by public officials; and the screening of legal acts performed by authorities in line with anti-corruption principles. As part of its capacity-building efforts, the Office runs regular training seminars and courses for Tajik officials.
Aside from its co-operation with the authorities on good governance issues, the Office also engages Tajik civil society and the media in its anti-corruption outreach. Working with civil society organizations, the Office designs special training modules on research methodology; the laws governing non-governmental organizations; legal safeguards; and national media regulations.
