Bureaucracy Index results are presented during the International Bureaucracy Day on September 29. To stress the size of bureaucracy, INESS deployed 200 meters long paper snake in the streets of Bratislava in 2017.
The pilot version of the Bureaucracy Index was calculated for Slovakia first in 2016. In 2017 Slovakia was joined by international partners for the first time. Based on the feedback from the 2016 and 2017 editions, INESS fine-tuned the 2018 methodology and made it even more straight-forward and adaptable for international partners.
