Prime witnesses? Case studies of staff assessments for monitoring integrity in the European Union

This report provides a first overview of how central institutions within public administrations of EU member states measure the effectiveness of integrity policies through the use of staff assessments. It discusses in detail 6 cases and provides a preliminary overview on all EU member states and the European bodies on their use of staff assessments or other monitoring efforts.

In light of the Dutch Presidency of the European Union in the first half of 2016, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) has initiated the current report. It is part of the ongoing international dialogue on strengthening evidence based integrity and anti-corruption policies for the public administration.
