Tupachevski N., Kiprizhanovska D. Harmonization of criminal legislation of the Republic of Macedonia with the recommendations of the Group of States Against Corruption

Published in journal "The Union of Criminalists and Criminologists", 2015-3 in rubric "A voice for the higher education", pages 207-218.

Resume: It’s hard to shake the feeling that corruption has inevitably penetrated all spheres of the society and created one of the most serious threats to the rule of law, personal rights and freedoms and economic development of the country. Due to its internationalization, the international community should consistently coordinate their efforts and design the common struggle against corruption strategy. The fact that corruption has become one of the priority transnational issues, is proved by numerous international documents, adopted by international organizations, including the UNO, the World Bank, the IMF, the Organization of American States, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Council of Europe and the EU. The extension of anti-corruption legislation can’t be based merely on the requirements of the so-called legislative authority optimism. It is unquestionable that the respect for and the assumption of obligations in accordance with international standards and norms, and the positive comparative experience should be among the driving forces of the internal legislation reform. Therefore, the efforts, aimed at the further modernization of the anti-corruption legislation framework by means of the introduction of the standards, provided by international treaties, and the judgements of international organizations, should be appreciated. The research methodology is based on dialectics, abstraction, analysis, synthesis, deduction, the comparative-legal, formal-legal and interdisciplinary legal methods.
