Despite the EU’s efforts to curb corruption through the accession process of the Central and Eastern European countries, it has remained a serious problem in the region. This presentation will explore how and to what extent the EU has been able to limit corruption, through enlargement conditionality, and the role of domestic factors in the process, comparing the Czech Republic, Romania and Macedonia.
