Information Technologies against Public-Sector Corruption in the Czech Republic: Assessment and Recommendations

Ondřej Císař

Abstrakt

The objective of the paper is to explore the possibilities for the employment of information and communication technologies for fighting public-sector corruption and the concrete impediments to a more extensive technology employment for generating wider social support for the anticorruption objectives and for assisting robust communication channels among the involved actors. The paper explores the present situation in two policy fields in the Czech Republic. First, the paper focuses on the developments in the field of information policy. Second, the paper evaluates the state of corruption and the fight against it. While in the first case the paper concentrates on the state strategies for the employment of information and communication technologies, in the second case the state strategy as well as the strategies of relevant non-governmental organizations are analyzed.
