Publius Cornelius Tacitus, has given a very unusual equation that more or less turned out to be true in the case of Macedonia. He stated „Corruptisima republica plurimae leges - The more laws one state has, the more corrupted it is”. Hence, we have numerous of laws that define, incriminate, fight, detect and prevent corruption but still the general impression is that we have more and more corruption and that we are far from the point we want to achieve. The purpose of this article is give a short introduction on corruption in general and on corruption in higher education in Macedonia. We will make a strong effort to elaborate its phenomenology and etiology in higher education in order to see where we are and to be able to come to relevant conclusions and give recommendations for successful fight against corruption in higher education. In order to be comprehensive we will elaborate the relevant laws for fighting and preventing corruption in higher education and we will try to estimate the potential of our legislation for successful fight against corruption in higher education. We are of the opinion that we have solid legislation background but our week spot lies in their implementation and the real possibility of the implementation of the provisions of the relevant laws. We have to work on building capacities especially in those areas where corruption often occurs. Key words: corruption, higher education, crime, prevention, whistleblowers, Macedonia.
