Abstract

In this paper, I compare the results of the different strategies of the fight against corruption realized by the Czech and Slovak governments. I use two types of empirical indicators. The first empirical comparison is based on hard data statistics of the malfeasance connected with corruption. The second empirical comparison is based on soft data surveys conducted by EBRD and World Bank together with EBRD. While the Slovak Republic was more successful than the Czech Republic according to hard data statistics, the Czech Republic remains relatively less corrupt in the light of soft data surveys. This conclusion might suggests that the repressive strategy of the fight against corruption pursued by the Slovak government did not succeed.
