Central and Eastern Europe have made considerable gains in the area of good governance, but have not achieved equal opportunities for men and women employed within the civil service.
Political and public institutions remain deeply entrenched in patriarchal culture; women play a marginal role in public decision-making; and public administration institutions do not provide sufficient incentives to create a female-friendly work environment.
While Central and Eastern European citizens can tackle government corruption in a number of ways, this survey methodology provides a first step: working with civil servants to ensure more transparent operations within the civil service.
This methodology is designed as a resource for understanding and contributing to current research on gender and corruption within the civil service and as a practical toolkit for implementing a survey on perceptions and experiences of gender, transparency and corruption.
