The Slovak Republic has been struggling with government favoritism and EU funds corruption for the past decade, with the results of becoming overregulated in most public integrity mechanisms and at maximum scores on the IPI. The demand for good governance is extremely high and limited only by the difficulty of the society to articulate its interests in the form of a pro-integrity sustainable majority in the Parliament. Political developments have been encouraging for the past years, though, and a better judiciary will follow better politics, and not the other way around.
