Abstract: 
On February 3, 2014, the European Commission released its first “EU Anti-Corruption Report”.[2] The Report covers all 28 EU Member States. It consists of: (i) a general chapter summarizing the main findings, describing corruption-related trends across the EU, and analyzing how Member States deal with corruption in public procurement; (ii) 28 country chapters providing a snapshot of the situation regarding corruption, identifying issues that deserve further attention, and highlighting good practices which might inspire others. The report also includes the results of two Eurobarometer surveys on the perception of corruption amongst European citizens on the one hand and companies on the other.
