Abstract: International organizations and European Union institutions have always been strongly engaged in the international fight against corruption, promoting lawfulness, the stability of democratic institutions, human rights protection and social and economic progress. Public integrity, transparency and accountability have been identified as part of the founding principles of good governance and public sector which should be enacted in legislation and applied consistently in practice. The paper restricts itself to review of the institutional and legislative framework to strengthen the effectiveness of the anticorruption policy and public integrity system in Serbia. The field of conflict of interest can be a powerful tool in establishing and maintaining citizens’ trust in public institutions. The aim of the paper is the analysis of anti-corruption legal and institutional framework in Serbia and rules governing the conflict of interest of public officials.

Keywords: anti-corruption policy, special organizational unit, integrity, public sector, good governance, accountability.
