In the framework of a European level research, TI Hungary prepares the National Integrity Study (NIS) this year. The National Integrity Study is aimed at identifying practical problems and legal shortcomings that allow corrupt cases to emerge, and formulating proposals to remedy them. The NIS will be published in 26 countries between 2010 and 2012. The project is supported by the European Commission and the Visegrad Fund, and it is coordinated by the Secretariat of Transparency International.
On the 4th of October, 2011 TI Hungary organised a Stakeholder Workshop with the participation of experts and decision makers of the examined areas. The goal of the workshop was to discuss lessons learnt from the first report, which was published in 2008, to analyse the results of the current research and to formulate recommendations. Almost 50 experts participated at the forum which proved to be very effective; the criticism and recommendations proposed at the workshop will serve as a basis for the anti-corruption work of TI Hungary and will make the NIS a more efficient advocacy tool.
