Romanian public and non governmental organisations active in the field of security, migration, anti trafficking, fight against corruption
Upon accession of Romania on 1 January 2007, certain weaknesses in the security system remained, as e.g. in the areas of judicial reform and the fight against corruption. Such weaknesses could prevent an effective application of EU and national laws, policies and programmes and prevent Romanians from enjoying their full rights as EU and Romanian citizens.
The purpose of the Thematic Fund Security is to address Schengen related issues and contribute to enhancing socially related security as well as to fighting against corruption and organized crime.
Activities are primarily the implementation of 10 to 12 projects and joint projects between Swiss and Romanian institutions amounting from CHF 150’000 to CHF 1’970’000. Projects will support exchange of know-how, training, acquisition of material, institutional development.
