GENEVA, September 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The Organized Crime Observatory (OCO) in Geneva has started a research and assessment on compliance regarding organized crime and public sector corruption in Ukraine.
This project is part of the EU initiatives to study the inclusion of former USSR countries in the EU. European Union (EU) State members as well as European Union deputies and NGOs, representing civil society in the European Union are requesting to conduct an assessment of the situation in Ukraine regarding the presence of organized crime, political corruption, illegal money laundering and financial frauds.
In addition to the participation of both European and Ukrainian institutions, this audit will be jointly conducted with international partners, universities and research centers from Europe and the United States.
The outcome will be a statement to both Ukrainian and European institutions, including the EaP Community (Eastern Partnership), on the status of public sector corruption & organized crime in Ukraine and on the ways to achieve normalization in the future.
OCO invites anyone who would like to contribute and provide information on the research topic to contact the team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
OCO is a Swiss based association (NGO) founded in 2001. Its goals are to provide understanding on structured criminal behaviors, patterns and facts, to educate specialists and large public on the phenomenon through education, trainings, lobbying, publication and public announcements but also by helping involved parties to communicate between them in a trustful and secure way. With more than 250 specialists worldwide, OCO believes that structured crime is a danger for the security of democracy, privacy and freedom around the world and must be addressed, as a global problem, through worldwide networking and exchange.
