Who We Are

Regional Anti-corruption Initiative’s mission is to lead regional cooperation to support anticorruption efforts by providing a common platform for discussions through sharing knowledge and best practices. RAI’s motto is: “We look for better anti-corruption solutions together”.

Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) is an intergovernmental regional organization, which deals solely with anti-corruption issues, covering the nine member states: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania and Serbia.

It is a product of states’ cooperation, institutionalized by signing the Memorandum of Understanding concerning cooperation in fighting corruption through Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (previously known as Stability Pact Anti-Corruption Initiative – SPAI), signed in 2007 and the Protocol amending the MoU, signed in 2013.

RAI serves as a concrete and visible demonstration of the commitment of its member countries to the continuing, concerted and coordinated fight against corruption in South East Europe.

The organization’s Secretariat is based in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
