Prime witnesses? Case studies of staff assessments for monitoring integrity in the European Union
In light of the Dutch Presidency of the European Union in the first half of 2016, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) has initiated the report. It is part of the international dialogue on strengthening evidence based integrity and anti-corruption policies for the public administration. This report provides a first overview of how central institutions within the public administration act on a responsibility for (measuring the) effectiveness of integrity policies and discusses in detail six cases: Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Netherlands and Poland. As integrity policies are targeted at public officials, this report focuses on audits and monitoring mechanisms that use staff assessments. We hope to facilitate an exchange of practical information that will support practitioners in the further development of effective integrity policies within their jurisdiction.
