Short description:
Sange Research Centre was the first organization to conduct the national survey on corruption in Kazakhstan in 1998. The shocking results were published in the newspaper. In 1999 the chapter of Transparency International opened in Kazakhstan. Although many conferences and round tables were held on anti-corruption issues by both Sange Research Centre and Transparency Kazakhstan, the main contribution from the Sange Research Centre is its regular surveys and publications with regard to corruption, and ranking of the government bodies. Also, recent studies were devoted to the corruption in tax office and custom services. These studies have resulted in steady improvements of services due to the corruption indicators included in the strategic plans.
