National integrity study



Published october 20, 2015

The National Integrity Study includes the most important government institutions that are responsible for the fight against corruption. If these institutions function well, they create a strong and resistant NIS that can effectively fight corruption; conversely, if there are not enough essential rules and unreported behaviour is prevalent, perfect conditions form for corrupt behaviour and the disturbances in societal development and social cohesion. Due to this, reinforcing the NIS encourages a country’s development, better governance and the advancement of society. NIS evaluates the legal system and the actual activities of the institutions that are responsible for the legal anti-corruption system. Included among those institutions are the legislative and executive branches, the courts, the public sector, law enforcement agencies, election monitoring institutions, Ombudsmen, audit and anti-corruption institutions, political parties, as well as the media, civic society and businesses.

About the publication:

This book presents how experts evaluate the integrity of various Lithuanian institutions and the public sector. In 2011-2012, TI Lithuania carried out the National Integrity Study in Lithuania, with twelve experts analyzing the public, private and civic society sectors, their capacity, dependency, transparency, integrity, ethical systems and their effects on the resistance of these sectors to corruption.

Experts analyzed thirteen institutions and related sectors: the Parliament, executive branch, courts, public sector, law enforcement institutions, election monitoring institutions, the Parliament’s auditors, State Controllers, anti-corruption agencies, political parties, mass media, civic societies and businesses. The study identifies the problems facing legal regulations as well as challenges to their implementation. It also provides recommendations for improvements and adjustments.

The book is aimed at everyone who is interested in corruption and its associated risks, and anti-corruption solutions.

Based on this study and national practice, Transparency International Lithuanian Chapter prepared short briefs targeting essential transparency challenges in the areas of political parties and procurement. You can take a look at those in both Lithuanian and English:
