Slovak agriculture as a specific area where the state applies a policy of extensive redistribution of finance remains the area where there are high risks of corruption even at the beginning of the 21st century. The fact that there has not been any broad discussion about character of a supportive agrarian policy in Slovakia makes the problem even more complicated. Neither a detailed analysis of causes and effects of the redistribution process in agriculture nor a complex alternative version of economic policy in agriculture have been elaborated yet.
Based on these facts, the publication wants to offer the first more complex view on corruption, its causes, effects and manifestations in the Slovak agriculture. It is important to provide information about the character of current agrarian policy in order to allow a wide public discussion. Then, based on this discussion, it will be possible to create a concept of such agrarian policy that will lead to transparent and effective forms of redistribution, to modern and prosperous Slovak agriculture able to compete in the European market.
