Integrity has become the fundamental condition for governments to provide a trustworthy and effective framework for the economic and social life of their citizens. The institutions and mechanisms for promoting integrity are more and more considered as basic components of good governance. This report provides a comprehensive database of integrity measures used in 29 OECD countries and it also takes stock of common trends and good practices. The first part of the report is analytical and aims to support the design of strategies in Member Countries. It does this by encouraging policy-makers to consider the experiences of other countries in a comparative way and by providing information on trends, models and concrete innovative solutions to assist organisation learning. The second part of the report presents the directly observable data on Member Countries' actions: regulations, institutions and procedures, and puts them into context by providing information on the surrounding political-administrative and social environments.
