The Anti-Corruption Action Center is the Ukrainian civil society organization, which unites experts from legal, media and civic-political sectors fighting corruption as a root cause of the key state-building problems in Ukraine.
Strategic goal: To create conditions, under which it would be too risky and unprofitable for the authorities to engage in corruption.
Why do we concentrate on corrupt officials in power?
Our activity is focused on political corruption in the form of regulatory decisions taken by the officials in power. We believe that political corruption under conditions of having a small group of interrelated people coming to power is the root cause of challenges in the nation-building of Ukraine. Political corruption leads to a significant increase in the level of administrative corruption and takes petty domestic corruption into the normal way of life. Political corruption takes billions from the state budget and depletes national resources by violating the fundamental human rights and condemning them to poverty.
