Anti-corruption and integrity in the public sector

Traditional approaches based on the creation of more rules, stricter compliance and tougher enforcement have been of limited effectiveness. A strategic and sustainable response to corruption is public integrity. Integrity is one of the key pillars of political, economic and social structures and thus essential to the economic and social well-being and prosperity of individuals and societies as a whole.

This page presents the work of the OECD on integrity in the public sector, including lobbying, conflict of interest, whistleblower protection and political finance.
