National Integrity System
Transparency International developed the National Integrity System approach as a comprehensive means of assessing a country’s anti-corruption efficacy sector by sector. It allows a nuanced analysis of national efforts to stamp out corruption. The NIS assessments offer a comprehensive evaluation of the integrity system in a given country. They are conducted by local in-country organisations, generally TI national chapters. The assessment examines both the formal framework of each institution, as well as the actual institutional practice, highlighting discrepancies between the formal provisions and reality on the ground. This in-depth investigation of the relevant governance institutions is embedded in a concise context analysis of the overall political, socio-economic and socio-cultural conditions in which these governance institutions operate. A thorough review of laws, policies and existing research studies constitutes the main data source for the assessment for the formal framework and the context analysisransparency Azerbaijan conducted assessment of the national integrity system in Azerbaijan in 2014. 13 sectors or pillars in the NIS terminology were assessed.
