ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for the government of Slovakia to focus on resolving corruption. The 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index of Transparency International shows that Slovakia slips down the world rankings to 59th from 49th in 2007. It states that the drop is more an indictment of the previous Smer-led administration, citing that the government has already progressed n legislative transparency issues. Yet, it believes that significant efforts are needed to improve judicial transparency.
