National Integrity Strategy (2012)
The National Integrity Strategy (NIS) sets out the government’s plan to address system weakness in domestic institutions, highlighted by the UN as a key driver of corruption.
The NIS reflects the government’s stated belief that “the fight against corruption cannot be won by prosecution alone; an inclusive approach based on values, morals, ethics and integrity is necessary.”
Under the NIS, the government aims to bring about the following changes:
- Parliament emerges as a place for fair and rational debate for law-making
- Local government is people-oriented, accountable, transparent and independent
- Civil society remains articulate, non-partisan and an active campaigner for national integrity, so that citizens can effectively demand transparency and accountability from public institutions
