Eurojust Casework on Corruption: 2016–2021 Insights presents key findings based on Eurojust's corruption casework and expertise built up over the years. It is the Agency's first dedicated publication in the corruption field. The report aims to support national authorities dealing with cross-border corruption cases by providing an overview of problems and solutions, including the use of Eurojust's judicial cooperation tools.
The report analyses corruption cases registered at Eurojust between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2021. During this reference period, 505 corruption cases were registered at Eurojust. Compared to the 78 cases registered at the Agency in 2016, the number of cases rose to 112 in 2021. This increase reflects the EU's priority to crackdown on corruption and Eurojust's growing importance in helping Member States tackle this cross-border crime. The cases discussed in this report were selected according to the amount of information available on specific legal or practical issues and best practices highlighted by Eurojust's National Desks.
