This  first  Integrity  of  Education  Systems  (INTES)  country  assessment  was  undertaken  at  the  request  of  the  Ministry  of  Education and Science of Serbia, following presentations of the assessment methodology to the Steering Group of the OECD Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (ACN), and discussions with the OECD Secretariat at regional meetings of the Education Reform Initiative of South Eastern Europe, which Serbia is currently chairing.

The objective of the present report is to support the Serbian government in its effort to prevent corruption in education and strengthen the integrity of the sector. The Serbian authorities were quick and efficient in responding to a number of findings in the report. Annex B provides an overview of reforms already undertaken to address them.
