From October 17 to 21 the Head of Academic Department of Civil Law and Procedure of PRUE, Ph.D. in Law, professor R. Kurbanov took part in the 73th plenary meeting of Group of States Against Corruption in Strasbourg, France.
The meeting agenda included the discussion and adoption of reports on the results of the third and fourth rounds assessed by Belarus, Italy, Austria, Monaco, Russia, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia.
At the meeting Professor R. Kurbanov had been speaking as an expert in the fourth round of Austria's assessment, together with experts from Denmark, Greece and Macedonia, presented the main findings of the report on results of the examination of corruption measures in Austria in respect of members of Parliament. In the statement he noted that overall, the situation with corruption in Austria is better than in the European Union, however, the Austrian law on combating corruption, in some cases, demonstrates its complicacy instead of complexity; many of the measures, although not executed in strict compliance with international instruments, help to fight corruption and, in general, they are effective. However, the adoption of a code of ethics for parliamentarians, providing greater transparency of the legislative process and a number of other measures allow to ensure adequate transparency of anti-corruption policy and strengthen the trust of the citizens.
