The project aims to promote and support anticorruption and justice reforms in Moldova, and positive systemic change, through monitoring and focusing public attention on the handling (or neglect) of cases of high-level corruption, key state anticorruption and public integrity agency activities and effectiveness, and legislative initiatives impacting the anticorruption and public integrity legal framework; materially contributing to improvement of anticorruption and public integrity initiatives arising during the life of the project; organizing public events on corruption, public integrity and rule of law themes; and producing high-quality, thoroughly researched and objective shadow reports to relevant international mechanisms evaluating Moldova on anticorruption-related issues.

The project also aims to empower, and foster and further develop, Moldovan civil society and civic activism, and increase public demand to put in place more efficient mechanisms to fight corruption in Moldova, through monitoring of anticorruption reform initiatives, actions and inaction; anticorruption training of NGO staff, civic activists and specialized journalists; and cultivation and consolidation of a network of NGOs, civic activists and journalists ready to react to corrupt conduct and abuses. As a result, the capacity of Moldovan civil society will further develop to efficiently monitor, react and report on systemic corruption problems and abuses, and the efficiency – or inefficiency – with which relevant state agencies are addressing the problems and abuses. Investigative journalism also will be supported, and investigative journalists advised on legal aspects, supporting production of qualitative investigative materials about corruption cases and successes – and problems – in the justice system.
