Transparency International, the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption, brings people together in a powerful worldwide coalition to end the devastating impact of corruption on men, women and children around the world. It’s mission is to create change towards a world free of corruption.

Sika supports within Transparency International the National Integrity System (NIS). The NIS combats corruption to support sustainable development, rule of law and human rights. The NIS Project uses an innovative combination of comprehensive research and active stakeholder engagement to, in a first step, assess the performance of the anti-corruption systems in 23 European countries, which leads, in a second step, to the development and implementation of targeted advocacy initiatives on the identified gaps in the anti-corruption system at national and at EU levels.

In its national dimension, the project will identify (and build support for tackling) anti-corruption issues of national concern, which the government should take action on. Due to its multi-level and evidence-based approach, the project is able to mitigate primary corruption risks as one of the most important forms of financial and economic crime across Europe in a holistic, systematic and sustainable manner.
