Energy governance and state capture risks in South-East Europe: regional assessment report

RAS contributed to SELDI’s energy governance report on the Western Balkans entitled “Energy Governance and State Capture Risks in Southeast Europe: Regional Assessment Report”.

The report provides comparative assessment of national energy governance deficits and state capture risks in the Western Balkans and Turkey. It conducts a thorough review of the regulatory framework, the corporate and financial governance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs), and the management of large-scale energy projects from the perspective of corruption pressures. The analysis proposes measures for increasing the effectiveness of public procurement, improving the corporate governance of SOEs, boosting transparent management of large-scale investment projects and enhancing the accountability and independence of energy regulatory authorities.
