Is the Greek crisis only an economic crisis? Could the latter be an opportunity for the revision of failed Greek institutions as a whole? The National Integrity System constitutes a valuable tool towards this direction, as it assesses 12 key institutions (anti-corruption agencies, business, civil society, the electoral management body, executive power, judiciary, legislature, media, Ombudsman, political parties, court of audit, and public administration) with regard to their resistance to corruption and proposes concrete solutions.
Transparency International is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption.
Note to editors: The National Integrity System assessment has been carried out between 1 March 2011 and 15 January 2012, within the framework of the European National Integrity System Project, which is being implemented in 26 European countries. The project has been implemented with the support of European Commission.
