Created in December 2016, the Network for integrity brings together 14 independent institutions from around the world, working to promote transparency, ethics and integrity in public life.
The Network for Integrity was launched on 9 December 2016 in Paris. It gathers 14 institutions from Armenia, Croatia, France, Georgia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Latvia, Mexico, Moldova, Peru, the Republic of Korea, Romania, Senegal and Ukraine. In November 2018, two observers, which take part in the Network’s discussions, joined from Ireland and Salvador. All institutions share a non-jurisdictional mandate, a complete independence from the executive and legislative branches and missions related to transparency, ethics or integrity of public officials.
The High Authority is a founding member of the Network and held the presidency and secretariat in 2019 and 2020.
The Network aims at developing and promoting an international culture of integrity in order to strengthen citizens’ trust in their governments and administrations. It promotes exchanges of information and best practices among its members. It published Guidelines on ethics and integrity in the public sector in 2019 and a report on Developing digital tools and open data to promote transparency in public life in 2020.
